Dhiraagu Introduces LTE-Advanced for the First Time in Maldives



Maldives largest telecommunications service provider, is proud to be the first mobile operator in South Asia to commercially launch the LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology. LTE-Advanced is the next iteration of the Long Term Evolution Standard and can offer speeds up to 300Mbps and it is has far more features than just speed. At the official unveiling ceremony of the superior 4G LTE network in 2014, Dhiraagu also demonstrated this cutting-edge 4G LTE-Advanced technology, for the first time in Maldives.  

LTE-Advanced services have been commercially launched in 45 countries. As this is a new technology, there are very few LTE-A supported handsets currently available in the market. Dhiraagu customers must ensure that their handsets have LTE Cat6 support with Carrier Aggregation feature using the band 3 (1800MHz) and band 7 (2600Mhz). On this network, customers uplink speeds will offer up to 50 Mbps for mobile broadband. This is ideal to send customers content and videos back up to the web.

Increasing demand for cellular bandwidth and the need to get things done faster means we have to use technologies such as LTE-Advanced to provide faster speeds. 

Dhiraagu Manager Marketing Communications & PR said, ‘LTE-Advanced is yet another step in our continuous efforts to offer the best mobile internet possible to our customers, our objective is to continue our effort in developing innovative solutions by adding maximum value to our customers and be the front runner in introducing latest mobile broadband technologies in the Maldives’.

With the successful launch of LTE-Advanced, Dhiraagu’s customers can enjoy a far superior experience on the first LTE-Advanced network in Maldives.
