Ooredoo commercially launched its 5G services in the Maldives in December 2020. The initial 5G rollout covered a large percentage of capital Male, including key business hubs, hospitals and public spaces. At a special event, the telecom giant also launched 5G AirFibre, the country's first 5G powered home broadband service.
Ooredoo's 5G AirFibre
Ooredoo 5G mobile services are available for both prepaid and postpaid users, while customers in Male can access 5G speeds through Ooredoo's 5G AirFibre Home Broadband. For a country like Maldives, 5G AirFibre makes sense due to the coverage aspects, and the AirFibre will deliver fibre kind of speeds helping small businesses, communities and customers as well.
50% off on Device
Ooredoo Maldives is now offering 50 per cent off on device with every new AirFibre Connection. In addition, customers can enjoy Lighting speeds up to 1 Gbps and stream their favourite shows and games with the superfast speeds of the Ooredoo 5G network.
Ooredoo 5G AirFibre Plans
5G AirFibre Plans are available for both postpaid and prepaid customers. In September 2021, the telco introduced all-new AirFibre plans offering customers more data than existing plans. As of today, the telco has six AirFibre Plans and four Data boosters packs for its customers.
