EU reports says Melita's internet fastest [MaltaToday]

(MaltaToday Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) A European Commission study on broadband internet in Europe based on real-life tests at customers' premises has once again confirmed Melita as the fastest internet service provider in Malta.

According to this study, Melita customers benefit from an average download speed of over 26 Megabits per second while competing operators via ADSL (telephone line) get less than 12 Megabits per second. Melita customers have more than double the download speed than subscribers of other operators.

Similarly Melita's fibre-powered internet beats other operators on reliability. In these real life tests Melita customers receive all the download speed they are subscribed to, while clients on ADSL get on average, 15% less than the speed they are paying for.

"Melita's score in this independent report are the result of continuous investment by the company into its broadband infrastructure and quality of service. We are committed and determined to remain Malta's leading internet services provider by giving more speed and more quality to our customers.

"Our focus is on giving customers great value for money and the report also confirms that Melita customers get the speeds they are promised, and more. Through the launch of melitaWIFI we are also ensuring that our clients get a seamless internet experience outdoors just like they do at home or office", said Ludolf Rasterhoff, Chief Operating Officer at Melita.

The study based on hundreds of Maltese households is based on a methodology that uses hardware devices and provides the most accurate and independent results of Internet performance regardless of access to technology and home installation.

This is the second measurement of a study on broadband performance by the European Commission that covers all EU Member States as well as Norway & Iceland, using the same approach. The project is being run by broadband performance testing specialist SamKnows, which has already conducted similar projects in the UK and the US.

Melita is the leading broadband internet provider in Malta and the only operator offering nationwide broadband internet speeds up to 100 Megabits per second. It also operates a direct link to Milan connecting it to global internet backbones such as Level 3 Communications and TeliaSonera International Carrier.
