Ooredoo Maldives (formerly Wataniya Maldives) is a mobile operator in the Maldives, owned by Ooredoo Group. The firm was issued a licence as the new mobile phone operator in February 2005. Ooredoo Maldives was selected after a bidding process with three other companies. All the bidders proposed competitive tariffs, but Ooredoo Maldives was investing heavily to deliver new services in the fastest possible time thus succeeded the competition. Currently they are providing GSM services throughout Maldives, with other value-added services. Ooredoo Maldives, is also the first to launch a 3.5G HSDPA network in the Maldives, on April 17, 2008, offering video calls and high speed mobile data connectivity.

Registered as a service provider in GCC, Ooredoo is already a leading mobile phone operator in the Middle East and North Africa. It is proven that Ooredoo is currently serving a total of more than three million customers in Asia.

Ooredoo Maldives is the sole competitor of Dhiraagu, the very first Maldivian telecommunications company. Dhiraagu dominated the market for a period of 17 years, being the only operator for that period.
