This is good news for Malta, which enjoys an excellent reputation for the quality and resilience of its telecommunications infrastructure,” Harald Roesch, CEO at local telecommunications company Melita Ltd said.

“The investment which our industry, particularly Melita, has made to bring super-fast internet to the whole country, together with the vibrant competition that exists between providers, continues to deliver quality services to customers at some of the best prices globally,” he continued.
