Ooredoo enhances data market leadership

Ooredoo said it continues to enhance its data market leadership across its global footprint, with its Ooredoo Maldives operation receiving an Internet service provider licence from the Communication Authority of the Maldives (CAM) earlier this month.

With the new licence, Ooredoo Maldives will be able to offer a new range of fixed line services, including business and home Internet, Ooredoo Fibre and Ooredoo Cloud. The company received the licence after a competitive bidding process, which saw Ooredoo come out ahead of national and international competition.

Across its footprint, Ooredoo is enhancing the range of data services on offer for customers, and investing in infrastructure to support customers´ digital lifestyles and the development of knowledge-based economies.

In the Maldives, Ooredoo has established a strong presence in the mobile broadband sector, holding the data leadership position in the Maldives for Mobile services and being 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.

Ooredoo is a leading international communications company delivering mobile, fixed, broadband internet and corporate managed services tailored to the needs of consumers and businesses across markets in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia.
