Ooredoo Maldives launches 5G services and broadband

Ooredoo’s Maldives branch announced the rollout of its 5G commercial services within the country, covering a large percentage of the capital city of Male, including key business hubs, hospitals, public spaces and more.

The announcement was made during an event celebrating the company’s start within the 5G era, as it also launched its 5G AirFibre – the first 5G powered home broadband service in the Maldives providing speeds that are tenfold.

5G technology not only promises a fundamental boost in speed, but offers significantly lower latencies, increased capacities and is much more reliable.

Paired with IoT technologies, this unlocks a wave of advances such as intelligent homes, smart cars, drone deliveries, and much more than what can transform life and power healthcare services, education, and even entertainment, such as sporting events and gaming.

The Qatari state-owned telco is quickly working with global operators to certify the network on additional handsets on the island; in parallel, the company’s Maldives branch also announced 5G Experience zones for customers, which includes the first 5G-powered VR Café’ in the Maldives and Ooredoo Club Premier Lounge.
