Ooredoo Kick Starts Smart City Initiative in Maldives

Ooredoo recently launched its Smart City initiative in the Maldives, introducing its Wi-Fi Hangout Areas across prime spots in the capital city including hospitals, ferry terminals, youth center and cafés. The service allows customers to use 50 Mb of data per day via its free Wi-Fi service. The service will be available to everyone in Maldives until the end of this month.

According to Ooredoo, as a lead partner in the Smart Cities Council, it has the opportunity to aid the direction of the emerging smart cities sector in the Maldives and across the world. The Smart Cities Council is a coalition of thought leaders who are collaborating to accelerate the move to smart, sustainable cities.

In line with Ooredoo’s commitment to support the development of smart cities in the Maldives, the company will continue to expand its smart city portfolio over the coming months, empowering people with smart sustainable solutions for prevalent issues across the nation. 

CEO of Ooredoo Maldives Vikram Sinha
We are committed towards connecting Maldives and its people to a smarter future. The smart cities concept is synonymous with our belief that we can leverage technology to stimulate human growth across our footprint. We look forward to building on Ooredoo’s expertise in this area, and providing the Maldivian community with smart solutions that can enrich their lives.
