- Why Melita
We are proud to have built the most powerful network in Europe by focusing our investments to turn Malta’s size into an advantage. Customers of all types and sizes can build their business over Melita’s network, be it at a fixed location or on- the- go. Melita is the only telecom provider in Europe with nationwide networks for Gigabit internet, NB-IoT 5G mobile and dedicated fibre to leading business centres.
With Malta being an island, we have invested in a resilient and redundant international network to provide their customers with reliable access to the internet. Your business is constantly connected to the world thanks to Melita's two, fully redundant submarine links to mainland Europe which connect to a redundant fibre optic backbone throughout Italy. Melita has direct point-of-presence (PoP) in Milan and peering with the world’s largest Tier I internet providers, including CenturyLink, TeliaCarrier and Cogent.
From smart street lighting to parking sensors, from connected waste bins to remote critical surgery, the possibilities with the Internet of Things (IoT) are endless. IoT makes your business smarter, more efficient, and more agile. Thanks to our 5G network enabled with NB-IoT and LTE-M capabilities, we can already provide businesses affordable connectivity to enable any or all of their IoT applications.
Our purpose-built data centre is built to Tier III specifications, covers a total fully-fenced footprint of 10,000m2, set in a solitary building situated on high-ground, it is situated - and designed - to be protected from flooding. Detached from the main traffic arteries till situated just a few minutes away from the main business hubs of Sliema and St Julian’s, the Melita Data Centre holds PCI-DSS and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certifications.
The secondary Data Centre facility is designed and built to the same strict specifications and is strategically located In the Mriehel Business Hub. The facility is connected to our Madliena PoP via two diverse, high capacity fibre optic cables fully owned and managed by Melita.
In 2021 Melita became Malta’s first 5G provider, with the nationwide launch of their state-of-the-art Ericsson network. With 5G many more devices will be able to connect to the Melita network simultaneously at speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps and latency of a mere 0.1 seconds – 10x faster than human perception. 5G will result in a better, more seamless experience for customers and open up new opportunities for business through new technologies and services such as the application of robotics such as precision manufacturing and the accelerated expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT).
What makes our network most valuable to your business, are the people behind it – be they the engineers that designed it, the teams maintaining our fibre network throughout the night or your own account executive. Our dedicated business support teams are specialists committed to offering a world class service to our business customers. We proactively monitor our customers’ fibre connections and data centre services, and hold ourselves accountable to very clear service level commitments.
