Ooredoo launches fibre broadband in Dhuvaafaru

4 Dec 2018

Ooredoo Maldives has expanded its ‘SuperNet’ fibre-optic broadband service to Dhuvaafaru, an inhabited island of Raa Atoll. Corporate Maldives reports that the rollout was carried out in cooperation with infrastructure partner Satlink, which has supported Ooredoo in expanding the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network on the island.

The Communications Authority of the Maldives (CAM) awarded an ISP licence to cellco Ooredoo in August 2015 and the firm launched commercial fixed telephony and broadband services in the capital Male in May 2016, notes TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database. Since then, FTTH services have been expanded to other locations, including Hulhumale, Vilufushi, Kulhudhuffushi, Villingili, Maradhoo, Eydhafushi, Maradhoo Feydhoo, Gahdhoo, Addu City and Maamigili.
