EU 'confirms Melita as Malta’s fastest internet service provider'

A study of broadband internet conducted across the European Union member states shows that Melita’s cable internet customers have an average download speed which amounts to more than double what other subscribers receive from other operators in Malta. Melita’s average download speed is also well above the EU average.

The study also shows that Melita customers receive the quality of service they pay for. In more than 95% of the tests, Melita’s internet clients clocked the advertised download speed, compared to 86% for other operators in Malta and an EU average of just 74%.

These results were registered in the “Quality of Broadband Services in the EU” report, which allows the European Commission to compare the performance and quality of broadband internet offered across the EU member states. The report was compiled by independent broadband research agency Sam Knows, based on a scientific sample of customers from each member state covering around 250 ISPs. Sam Knows recently conducted a similar exercise for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) covering broadband speed and quality in the USA.

The full report is available for download from the European Commission website
