    Dhiraagu launches satellite phone service
    We are pleased to announce the launching of Dhiraagu Satellite Phone Service, a significant step in the provision of communications services in the Maldives.

    The service was launched on 30th November ’08 at a special event held at West Park restaurant, which was attended by members of Government institutes, Liveaboard Association of Maldives, boat owners and operators. Under an agreement with internationally leading company Thuraya, Dhiraagu is the exclusive provider of satellite phone service in this country. Given the geography of the Maldives, and the importance of the fishing, travel and tourism industries, this satellite communication technology is the ideal solution for those who would normally be completely isolated for long stretches of time.

    Dhiraagu Satellite Phone Service allows customers to enjoy the convenience and mobility offered by Thuraya, whose coverage area encompasses 110 nations, an area in which customers would be able to receive calls from anywhere in the world.

    With superior GPS navigation allowing users to find locations easily, Dhiraagu Satellite Phone Service guide travelers to their destinations quickly, and operators of fishing, safari and shipping vessels, as well as yachts and other seafarers, would appreciate the reliable, uninterrupted service which enables communications, when most needed.

    In areas where there is no mobile coverage, and in times of crisis when unforeseen circumstances lead to failure in the communications framework, Dhiraagu Satellite Phone Service would provide a support system, assuring exchange of crucial information. As such, this service is ideal for government departments, atoll and island offices, resorts, and uninhabited agricultural and industrial islands.

    Offering satellite cellular (GSM) service and location determination system (GPS) in a single dual mode, the Thuraya handset offers voice, data, fax and short messaging services. And being the world’s smallest satellite phone, it still remains lightweight, elegant and easy to use.

    Dhiraagu Satellite Phone Service is available as postpaid and prepaid, with several packages designed to suit various requirements and budgets, and with low entry fees and minimum contract duration of only one month, customers are bound to find the service attractive.

    As the owner of the major communications infrastructure of the Maldives, Dhiraagu is proud to have accompanied and assisted the country on the road to its present development. And with our knowledge, it is natural that we continue to ensure that the latest and most innovative communications tools are made available for the local industries.
