1,000 Mbps internet available nationwide
Proud moment for Melita
Malta has become one of the first countries in the world, and the only country in Europe, where ultrafast 1000 Megabits (1 gigabit) per second fixed internet is available nationwide.
Internet provider Melita said the latest upgrades to its hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) network have also reduced the latency on the network, further improving quality and reliability.
Harald Roesch, CEO at Melita , said, “This is an historic milestone for Melita and for Malta. After being the first to roll out a 5G-ready mobile network last December, we have now achieved another first, delivering Gigabit internet nationwide. Our ongoing investments in infrastructure continue to ensure Malta retains its position as one of the best-connected countries in the world, while also future proofing our network for the coming Internet of Things era.”
As demand for data from homes and businesses continues to grow exponentially and more devices become connected to the internet, Melita is offering its 1 Gbps internet service through the GigaPower product line whilst also delivering dedicated fibre services to offices and business centres. Through GigaPower, home customers will enjoy 40 times more speed than a 25 Mbps internet connection. This means that, for example, an HD film can be downloaded in seconds.
