Free WI-FI to 100,000 Melita customers
melitaWIFI now also available in Valletta & Marsa
Melita’s minimum download speed now at 30 Megabits per second 

Today marks a very important milestone in Malta’s connectivity development as Melita announced several major breakthroughs to address an ever-increasing demand for high-speed broadband internet.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat today presided over the official launch of melitaWIFI – a free next generation Wi-Fi broadband internet service offering seamless connectivity, indoors and outdoors. The service was soft launched last November for about 25,000 Melita customers and is now available for free to more than 100,000 Melita customers.

During a launch event in St George’s Square, Valletta, Melita Group CEO Andrei Torriani explained that melitaWIFI is already available in 7 outdoor zones including The Strand, Sliema, Paola, Bugibba and Marsascala. “We enabled about 30,000 indoor Wi-Fi hotspots and this number is growing daily. The service is free to all Melita mobile contract customers and we’re now extending free access to all Melita customers on a trial basis until June” said Mr Torriani. 

Mr Torriani also announced that melitaWIFI outdoor zones are now also available in Valletta’s busiest streets including Republic Street and Merchants’ Street. melitaWIFI takes advantage of Melita’s superfast nationwide broadband network to deliver equally fast internet on mobile devices via Wi-Fi technology.

Meanwhile, the Group CEO also announced that Melita’s entry-level download speed has increased to 30 Megabits per second and all Melita customers will soon enjoy a minimum of 30 Megabits as their download speed. “That’s 30 times more than just a few years ago. Our customers can already enjoy nationwide download speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second and in some areas, such as Sliema and St Julian’s, even faster speeds of up to 250 Megabits are available”, said Mr Torriani. More localities are expected to be upgraded to speeds of up to 250 Megabits per second throughout this year.

The launch event was also addressed by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Melita’s Chairman Joseph A. Gasan. In his speech, Mr Gasan traced the company’s humble beginnings as a cable TV provider and the evolution that followed over a period of more than 20 years. “Our passion for innovation and our financial investments are a clear testament of Melita’s strong belief in Malta’s potential. Melita’s shareholders are committed to this company and to Malta, and through their investments and international expertise we can effectively implement projects like the one we’re unveiling today. We continue investing heavily in infrastructure, both locally and externally to connect Malta to the rest of the world. This enables us to offer even better and more reliable services” said Mr Gasan.

Throughout the next five years Melita will be investing another 60 million Euros to continue upgrading its services.

In the first season of this clever comedy, 16-year-old Tessa is uprooted from her beloved New York City and planted in the suburban “purgatory” of Chatswin. But the suburbs aren’t all bad as Tessa and her dad, George, discover, and with the help of the overly friendly suburbanites, the two find ways to survive their culture shock. Gradually, however, George and Tessa started to become what they swore they would never be: suburbanites. Now, as the third season begins, they find themselves more at odds with bucolic Chatswin than ever before. George struggles to once again navigate life as a single suburban dad after a tumultuous breakup with Dallas, while Tessa, abandoned by her mother at the start of her senior year, no longer has any interest in trying to fit in. She and George recommit to walking amongst the suburban hordes without becoming them. Only Chatswin’s pull is stronger than they anticipated. Meanwhile, the Shays suffer from empty-nest syndrome after Ryan goes off to college — never mind that Lisa is still at home — and Dallas deals with the loss of her relationship with George. But no one suffers from the breakup more than Dalia (according to Dalia), who misses her “Daddy Altman,” and amplifies her feud with Tessa. Welcome back to SUBURGATORY.

“Melita is very glad to once again extend its relationship with FITA. FITA and its administration team do a sterling work in promoting the use of ICT amongst disabled people.

Less than two months after Melita launched its new co-location data centre in Madliena, the market’s response has been so encouraging that it is already running at almost full capacity and the operator is planning an expansion.

The new centre provides essential infrastructure to data-hungry companies in the financial services sector, i-gaming, IT companies and systems integrators among others, and exploits the infrastructure used by Melita in its role as an internet service provider (ISP) with its own international submarine data cable.

It also provides these companies with essential disaster recovery and business continuity services that are today considered a crucial factor in the commercial and technical survival of a company.

“Cutting-edge data facilities, such as these developed by Melita, are particularly attractive for financial services, system integrators and online gaming operators, who are increasingly finding Malta as a reliable and secure location from where to conduct their business,” explained Ludolf Rasterhoff, chief commercial officer at Melita.

He described this result as another success story for the company and reaffirmed its commitment to strengthen Malta’s telecommunications infrastructure. Thanks to its investments in its network infrastructure, Melita is creating optimum conditions for more foreign companies to consider Malta as an ideal base for their operations.

The investment in a new data centre falls within the multimillion-euro investment programme that Melita is rolling out over a five-year period, amounting to an investment of €60 million in technology and network upgrades.

The data centre has been built to what in the industry is known as Tier 3 standard and offers all the security and redundancy features that make a 24/7 operation possible. This includes security of the premises in terms of all-round perimeter fencing, access control to different areas of the building, fire prevention and suppression, power supply, the internal data network and data links to the outside world. The fact that the building stands alone without adjacent buildings, and it is not in motor vehicle or flight paths, renders the facility even more secure.

Since the data centre is hosted in Melita’s head-end in Madliena, it exploits Melita’s fibre-powered infrastructure, and Melita corporate customers who opt to use the services of the data centre can benefit from this feature directly.

However, the data centre is carrier-neutral in the provision of ISP services in the sense that it allows its customers to chose the services of any ISP in Malta and not those exclusively provided by Melita.

Asked about managed cloud services, Mr Rasterhoff explained that at this stage Melita is opting to offer such services through third party service specialists and system integrators. A healthy number of these are already present in Melita’s new data centre.

Data centre corporate customers can also benefit from service level agreements that cover 24/7 operations and a business helpdesk separate from Melita’s customer care centre that supports home users.

Riding on this very successful experience, Melita is now already planning a second phase for its data colocation centre, which will offer even more space than what is currently available. The operator is also looking into the possibility of adding new services within the co-location framework to address specific requirements for companies operating in the i-gaming and financial services sectors.

Over the past weeks Melita also deployed its new melitaWIFI service in Sliema with an outdoor Wi-Fi zone starting from Black Gold all the way to the Nazzarenu Church area. These initiatives are part of a EUR 60 million investment programme planned by Melita for the next five years.
