Melita Business v home internet: Which is right for you?

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 by Melita Business
Melita is dedicated to Maltese businesses with a team of specialist Melita Business installation engineers who will connect you to our fibre optic network within two working days.

It is no secret that one of the most important services that businesses in Malta and Gozo make use of is the internet. 

Having a reliable, uninterrupted and fast internet connection is paramount to the smooth running of your business.

Just think of all the elements that operate through your internet connection: your email, office Wi-Fi, POS system, music and entertainment, CRM system, your social media and website, cameras and security, remote work, payroll, sales software, productivity apps, stock control and so many other things without which, your business simply cannot function.

With more than 20 years of experience, Melita is the right choice when it comes to fast, high quality internet access for Maltese companies. 

With Malta’s largest data centre, a first class fibre optic network and enormous, constant investment in the latest cutting-edge technology, infrastructure and highly trained personnel, it is hard to get better value for money than with Melita. 

When you team up with Melita Business, not only are you getting a top-quality internet service provider in Malta, you are also entering into a technological partnership that will examine, cross-check and optimise your firm’s current set up, boosting your connectivity. 

Having considered all options, you may be tempted to go for a Melita Home internet package. 

While that may be sufficient in some cases, you should also know the differences between the Melita Home and Melita Business internet packages. 

Business v Residential: Which Melita internet service is right for you?

The first, and perhaps most obvious, is internet speed. While we still offer gigabit-level download speeds to Melita home customers, it is the upload speeds where Melita Business customers have a big advantage.

Not only that, but our business customers benefit from prioritized speeds and benefit from less dropouts than home internet. 

What’s more, our business and enterprise packages are flexible according to your company’s needs. 

From basic firepower starting at a superfast 500 Mbps connection all the way up to a secure and dedicated business fibre optic direct link, we have the data muscle that your business needs to grow to the next level. 

In line with offering increased connectivity services, we also offer increased customer service and support to our business internet users. 

In fact, Melita Business internet customers get priority service from our  dedicated business support centre which is open from 8am to 10pm. 

If you are a business dedicated fibre user, you will receive round the clock support, 365 days a year. 

At Melita, we pride ourselves in offering some of the strongest service level agreements in Europe, some of which cater for 99.9% internet uptime and super-fast response, analysis and technical troubleshooting whenever the need arises. 

These agreements are built on our commitment to offer nothing but the highest level of service in the market. 

Melita Business customers also benefit from enhanced security software and encryption. At Melita, we understand and appreciate the value and sensitivity of business data. 

As a business customer, we take your security one step further through the implementation of more accurate security software, stronger monitoring systems and frequent review and analysis of our security systems. 

Business users also have the ability to opt for free use of a static IP address. This comes in handy particularly when your company makes frequent use of dedicated services such as email, FP and web servers. 

You’ll also benefit from having a static IP address if your business operates hosting servers or makes frequent use of geolocation services. 

Of course, making use of the services available from the Melita Data Centre is an added bonus when it comes to managing, outsourcing, or relocating your company’s data needs. 

There are additional benefits to being a business internet customer too, such as the fact that packages can include unlimited mobile bundles, free landline calls to local numbers and the possibility of setting up off-site virtual PBX systems or using IP phones. 

We even offer NexTV in our business and business flexi packages so that you can liven up waiting rooms, canteens, lounge areas or any other types of relaxation spaces within your business.

Now that you know the differences, hopefully you can make a more informed decision when coming to choose the Melita internet package that is right for your company. 

Connecting with Melita Business is one of the best decisions you can make to boost your business.
