I would like to congratulate and thank Ooredoo Maldives for their impressive work in the digital transformation of the Maldives.” Minister of Cities, Local Governments and Public Works Honorable Adam Shareef.

“ The PEACE cable landing which started today is the first time a main cable landing station has been maintained away from the greater Male’ area. This is monumental for Kulhudhuffushi City, and will assist us in providing even better services to Maldives. We are extremely proud that Kulhudhuffushi City will now be included in the submarine cable maps of the world.” Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo Maldives, Hussain Niyaz
