GO faster: Maltese telco to launch 4G this year

24 Mar 2015

Maltese fixed line and mobile operator GO has confirmed plans to launch 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology this year. The telco has signed an agreement with equipment vendor Nokia Networks for an upgrade of its radio access network (RAN). Kelvin Camenzuli, GO’s Chief Technical Officer, commented: ‘The introduction of 4G is an exciting prospect for GO’s customers, giving those who live their lives on the move access to even faster mobile internet speeds.’ Malta’s mobile market leader Vodafone launched its first LTE services back in November 2013 and was claiming 70% population coverage by January this year. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Vodafone accounted for around 46% of Malta’s 574,000 mobile users at the end of 2014, while GO took 40% and Melita had a 14% share.
