Managing Director of Focus Infocom Sobah Rasheed speaking to Miadhu Daily said in order to prevent future interruptions to the internet service in Maldives work to establish a third route is underway.

“Due to the incident we are now providing the service via two routes, our current preparations are such that we can switch services being provided from one route to another, preparations are currently underway to establish a third route, how ever we have not decided as yet how that route will be, from which country or how we much we have to pay for establishing such a route, but even these details are not finalized, work to establish the route is going on” Sobah said.

  1. A third undersea cable in Maldives? Focus infocom must be joking. Dhiraagu 10Gb cable between Sri Lanka and Maldives only less than 6% is utilised, WARF cable between India and Maldives is less than 3% utilised, again laying a third cable is an investment surely to be considered. For me its just a simple joke.
