Malta fixed broadband subscribers up almost 6% in 2019

Friday 8 May 2020 | 11:31 CET | News
Malta's telecoms sector saw a general increase in subscriptions in the fourth quarter of 2019, in line with trends observed in the previous quarters of the year, according to the latest report from the Malta Communications Authority. While domestic demand was key to growth, the strong migration inflows of foreign labour in 2019 contributed significantly in boosting take-up. The subscriber base grew most rapidly for the fixed broadband segment, with the number of subscriptions up by 5.6 percent in 2019 and the FTTH, cable and fixed wireless platforms all contributing to the growth.
