TeliaSonera International Carrier providing global/local connectivity for Maltese operator Melita

May 28, 2014

Melita, the fastest internet service provider in Malta, announced that it has connected to leading global internet backbone provider TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC). This enables direct, fast access to TSIC’s customer base across 85 countries. For example, 80% of the world’s top 20 content providers are directly connected, enhancing the Internet experience for Melita’s customers.

“End users are demanding more – moving beyond being connected to being immersed in their connectivity. This means closer co-operation with our communication service provider customers, such as Melita, so we can act together to meet rapidly changing demands. We are proud that Melita has chosen TSIC and we look forward to working together in the exciting and challenging times ahead,” says Staffan Göjeryd, Vice President, Data and Infrastructure, TeliaSonera International Carrier.

The new link to TSIC means that Melita will be able to provide even better quality international connections to the Internet. Home users will experience this particularly when using applications like online multi-player games, video streaming and other applications that require ever quicker response from different points around the world.

For business customers, the improved connectivity performance, driven by better latency and even lower packet loss, results in a more efficient network experience. This is particularly relevant for businesses which operate their business online, or ‘in the cloud’. The link to TSIC also complements other investments by Melita aimed at enhancing quality of service for its internet customers, especially business customers. Less than two years ago Melita extended its international reach to Milan to enhance international connectivity as well invested in a state-of the art colocation data centre.

“Melita is determined to maintain its position as broadband leader in Malta for residential and business customers alike. We invest heavily in our infrastructure in Malta and are proud to work with TSIC as a leading carrier to deliver best in class connectivity to the rest of the world. Higher speeds and best quality of service are our guiding principles. The link to TeliaSonera International Carrier is welcome news especially for business customers operating in the gaming industry”, commented Ludolf Rasterhoff, COO at Melita.

Melita is the leading broadband internet provider in Malta and the only operator offering nationwide broadband internet speeds up to 100 Megabits per second. It also operates a direct link to Milan connecting it to global internet backbones such as TSIC. For more information visit website www.melita.com
