Ownership of the recently deployed Open Access Network (OAN) in Phase 2 of Hulhumalé is held by Housing Development Corporation (HDC). This separates the owner of the network infrastructure that enable the transportation of services from the title and responsibilities of service providers themselves. To simply state, telecommunication service providers are facilitated by one single high-performance network infrastructure, providing the end users; meaning our residents, with high-speed internet, TV, video and other services.
How our Open Access Network model works:
When the deployment of OAN infrastructure and management is undertaken by us, service providers can solely focus on providing more enhanced services and more variety of services to their customers. Furthermore, the overall cost of service provision will be reduced for service providers as the infrastructure is shared among many service providers, rather than the total investment on infrastructure being completely absorbed by the respective service provider itself to provide its services.
