Malta consults on broadband access

26 May 2020

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) has opened a consultation on the provision of wholesale fixed broadband access based on its preliminary findings. The regulator has ruled that the island’s two main fixed network operators – GO and Melita – have significant market power in both the retail and wholesale broadband markets. It says other providers have had difficulty entering the sector and it is proposing a number of regulatory obligations relating to access, non-discrimination, transparency, price control and accounting separation. Responses to its proposals are being accepted until 24 July.
