Ooredoo Maldives has expanded its ‘SuperNet’ fibre-optic broadband service to the island of Naifaru, the capital of Lhaviyani Atoll. Customers are able to access fixed broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps. ‘Today we have launched our SuperNet services in the island with the aim of enriching the lives of the people of Naifaru through digital means, and connect them to new opportunities,’ The Edition quotes Hussain Niyaz, acting CCO of Ooredoo Maldives, as saying, adding: ‘We reaffirm our commitment to the people of the Maldives, and will continue to enrich the lives of our communities.’
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.
