Dhiraagu has been honored with the accolade of the nation's premier broadband telecom company at this year's Asian Telecom Awards.

The Asian Telecom Awards serve as a platform to acknowledge the accomplishments of the communication sector in the region, applauding the strides made by companies in fostering a contemporary digital landscape.

This prestigious award was conferred in acknowledgment of Dhiraagu's dedication to delivering high-speed mobile and fiber broadband services to an island nation characterized by a dispersed population across multiple islands, such as the Maldives. The award recognizes the company's commitment to advancing communication and digital connectivity.

Ismail Rasheed, CEO and Managing Director, Dhiraagu, said, "With this success, Dhiraagu is committed to providing high-speed internet to all parts of the country and providing the best possible service to our customers." He described the award as an honor for the company and thanked the customers for their faith in Dhiraagu.

Dhiraagu extends 100% mobile 4G coverage to 187 inhabited islands, along with comprehensive coverage of all resorts and industrial islands. Over the past year, the company has significantly expanded its fiber-to-home internet services, reaching 94% of households. Dhiraagu has successfully introduced 5G services, now accessible to 50% of the population. As one of the most prominent communication service providers in the country, Dhiraagu continues to enhance its network infrastructure.

Last week Dhiraagu achieved the 'Country's Fastest Mobile Network' award at the Ookla Speedtest Awards.
