Melita begins 5G network trials

30 Sep 2020

Maltese fixed and wireless operator Melita has begun trials of 5G mobile technology using its existing frequency holdings under a temporary permit it received last month. Melita says it has already deployed a 5G-ready network nationwide under a 2018 contract with Ericsson. The firm says it measured emissions from 282 antennae across Malta before beginning its tests, saying that emission levels were ‘extremely low’. Melita is the smallest of Malta’s three cellcos in terms of subscribers, with around 25% of the overall market according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
