Free Wi-Fi by Melita at Floriana Granaries

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 by

Melita has extended its free outdoor Wi-Fi broadband trials to the Granaries in Floriana, powered by its unique Fibre Power broadband service. Throughout the trial period, all Melita customers and non-customers can avail themselves of free internet while at the Granaries area through any Wi-Fi enabled mobile phone.

The service is already available and anyone attending the Isle of MTV concert tonight may make use of this service.

Accessing the free Wi-Fi broadband service is very simple. When at the Granaries, users need a Wi-Fi enabled mobile phone to complete a one-time registration process. Scan for Wi-Fi networks and choose the network “MELITA FREE WI-FI”. When you open your web browser you will be requested to enter your mobile number. An instant SMS will be sent to that mobile number with a registration code. Enter this number in the login screen on your phone’s web browser, and you are ready to browse the world-wide-web for free.

The free Wi-Fi broadband trial service is also available in selected areas of Paceville: Xatt Ta’ San Gorg, Triq Santu Wistin, Triq Santa Rita, Triq San Gorg, parts of Triq Elija Zammit, parts of Triq Id-Dragunara, Triq Il-Wilga and Triq Ball.
