Vodafone has announced that it will be launching LTE services in Malta in the beginning of November.
Vodafone said that it will initially be providing 4G coverage in the areas of Malta that already have the highest demand for mobile data, including Valletta and the main commercial and entertainment hotspots of Sliema and St. Julians.
The announcement was made at a press conference attended by Prime Minister Dr. Joseph Muscat, Minister Dr. Chris Cardona and Parliamentary Secretary Dr. Edward Zammit Lewis.
"The launch of 4G marks the culmination of many years of daunting challenges, hard work, and investment," said Balesh Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at Vodafone Malta. "This is another first for us at Vodafone Malta, after being the first operator to deploy 42 Mbps across our network back in April 2012. Vodafone has invested €10m to build a 4G network and provide the very latest mobile technologies to our customers here in Malta."
