Ooredoo expands FTTH to Omadhoo

17 Jul 2020

Ooredoo Maldives has expanded its ‘SuperNet’ fibre-optic broadband service to the island of Omadhoo, one of the inhabited islands of Alif Dhaal Atoll. ‘We are pleased to launch SuperNet fixed broadband services in Omadhoo, especially at an unprecedented time like this where internet is needed more than ever to stay connected with loved ones and to stay updated on news and currents events,’ commented Hussain Niyaz, acting CCO of Ooredoo Maldives.

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.
