Melita launches gigabit internet for homes, businesses

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 16:55 CET | News

Melita launched gigabit internet for homes and businesses with cable technology from Cisco. The 1 Gbps internet service is initially available in St Julians, Sliema and Valletta with the Melita Flexi bundle for residential customers for an additional EUR 25 a month over the 100 Mbps subscription.

Melita said it successfully collaborated with Cisco for more than a decade to provide cable broadband, high-speed WiFi and internet to Maltese customers. The operator said it has been preparing its fibre-coax infrastructure for this upgrade for years, meaning that there are no complex installations or re-wiring needed to get access to its 1Gbps internet connections. Customers only need a simple change in modem to access the increased speeds.

GigaPower also makes possible new innovations such as virtual tele-presence, remote healthcare and even driverless cars, the company said in a press release.
