The Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport and Communications, has launched a call for expressions of interest in the roll-out of a next generation broadband infrastructure that allows for ultra-fast broadband services, across Malta and Gozo.
The Government of Malta is committed to accelerating the roll-out of ultra-fast broadband services to all areas of Malta and Gozo, concentrating initially, on priority broadband users such as schools, hospitals, businesses and providers of other public services where possible. Following this, we plan to reach all residential areas in a phased approach through a nation-wide Fibre-to-the-Home network.
“This network is essential for Malta to continue to be among the leading nations in the field of ICT, building upon its successes in creating new jobs in the ICT and service- based industries to Malta and enabling the Government to continue to be the European leader in eGovernment services. Our plans for eHealth and eLearning solutions, which will bring state-of-the-art health care and learning solutions into our homes, are dependent on having a resilient, future-proof network, offering services in a competitive environment,” Minister Austin Gatt said.
The objective of having an ultra-fast broadband network is in line with the EU-wide objective of 100 Mbps service availability and wide-spread take-up by 2020.
