Maltese regulator says spectrum demand outstrips supply

1 Dec 2017

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) says it has received expressions of interest from four companies looking to attain rights to use wireless broadband spectrum. Incumbent trio GO, Vodafone and Melita, plus start-up firm Malta are interested in acquiring frequencies in the 800MHz and 2500MHz bands, while Melita has also shown an interest in securing 1800MHz spectrum. The regulator says the demand for frequencies outstrips the availability in the respective bands. It will now issue a Call for Applications and is inviting all respondents to take part in the process.
