Ooredoo Maldives has expanded its ‘SuperNet’ fibre-optic broadband service to the island of Fuvahmulah. ‘Fuvahmulah City continues to evolve into a flourishing digital hub in the south of the Maldives. As such, we’re excited to support their digital transformation journey with the launch of the first SuperNet fixed broadband connection in the Maldives which is powered by Ooredoo’s own gigabit capable fibre network,’ Corporate Maldives quotes Najib Khan, CEO of Ooredoo Maldives, as saying.
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 more than 20 islands, including Hulhumale, Vilufushi, Kulhudhuffushi, Villingili, Maradhoo, Eydhafushi, Maradhoo Feydhoo, Gahdhoo, Addu City and Maamigili.
