Malta considers new cable link

3 Feb 2015

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) is to carry out a feasibility study into whether there is a need for a new submarine cable to link the island to mainland Europe and beyond. The authority says that ‘Malta’s broadband internet readiness is becoming increasingly pivotal in influencing the nation’s global competitiveness,’ with international connectivity being ‘fundamental to the economy’. Although Malta does have existing international submarine links, the MCA says there is a need to enhance the resilience and quality of its international connections.
