Melita partnered with Ericsson to launch its 5G-ready 4.5G mobile network in Valletta. The network will be continually rolling out across the country to reach nationwide coverage by the end of the year. Customers who are subscribed to Melita's Unlimited plans, and have 4.5G capable devices, can automatically start making use of this brand new mobile network at no additional cost. Customers subscribed to other plans will be able to start using the network from September. The Maltese operator announced in March it selected Ericsson as its strategic partner for its upgrade to 5G technology.
