Ooredoo, a Qatar-based leading telecom group, has announced that its Maldives operation won an Internet Service Provider licence from the Communication Authority of the Maldives (CAM) earlier this month.
The company received the licence after a competitive bidding process, which saw Ooredoo come out ahead of national and international competition, the company said.
Ooredoo has established a strong presence in the Maldives in the mobile broadband sector where it holds the data leadership position for mobile services.
Ooredoo was the first to introduce a range of new technologies to the country, including 2G Edge, 3G, 3G+ and 4G. It was also the first company to launch a self-service mobile application, revolutionising the country’s services and driving the market to reach international standards, it said.
Nasser Marafih, group CEO, Ooredoo, said: “Across our footprint, Ooredoo continues to enhance the range of communication services available to our customers. Receiving this ISP Licence will enable to bring positive changes to the quality and affordability of the internet for the people of the Maldives. We believe in enabling as many people as possible to use our life-enhancing services, and bringing fixed Internet features such as Fibre, Cloud based services and business solutions will support the growth of the Maldivian economy and benefit consumers.” – TradeArabia News Service
