Malta: The Making of a 'Smart' Island

Company: Melita

Industry: Telecommunications

Location: Malta


Melita, one of Europe's oldest cable operators, is preparing its converged telecommunications services for the future with an island-wide Wi-Fi network on Malta. The company needed to support 30 Mbps minimum speeds for mobile broadband TV and video. It also wanted to ensure customers enjoyed the same speeds in both indoor and outdoor environments.


Melita is delivering an easy-to-use broadband service with Cisco Universal Wi-Fi for Service Providers. The solution provides an end-to-end path from access points to core network gateways.


Since deploying the new network, Melita has carried as much Wi-Fi traffic in a year as it had previously in four years. Melita is strengthening its market leadership, while also helping the government in its goal of making Malta a "smart" island. By providing high-speed Wi-Fi access throughout the island, Melita is improving experiences for citizens and tourists alike.

We've made progress in getting higher speed consumption across our customer base, as well as our market leadership in the broadband space.

CEO, Melita
