Maltese service provider, Go has signed an agreement allowing Vodafone to use its fibre to the Home (FTTH) network to deliver internet services.

The provider has invested in its fibre-powered infrastructure over the years, with CEO Nikhil Patil citing the annual figure as within the ‘millions,’ enabling Go to have access to three submarine cables, and provide fibre-powered fixed broadband with speeds of up to 200Mb/s. The company’s mobile network is connected to the internet via a fibre network, providing speeds of up to 42Mb/s as well as 4G (LTE ready) coverage throughout the Maltese Archipelago. 

The announcement means, says Go, that operators without their own network can make use of the company’s FTTH network in order to offer fixed broadband services to their respective subscribers. Commented Patil: ‘We have [invested] at great expense, effort and risk so that Malta can be at the forefront when it comes to technology and telecommunications. GO is proud of this investment that delivered the required infrastructure for Government to realise its vision for Malta to become the blockchain island.’

Patil went on to say that one must not forget the regulatory obligations imposed on Go that make it easier for other operators to ride on its existing infrastructures. He assured shareholders that the company is keeping its investment options under constant review and will adhere to its duty to invest only when it envisages sustainable rates of return. ‘Go is proud that global brands acknowledge what we can offer them, and we are delighted that such operators choose our fibre network to keep providing their services to customers,’ he concluded.
