Summary of broadband development in Malta

Malta has already achieved the target of 100% broadband coverage with 30 Mbps. The 2020 target for 50% of households with subscriptions over 100 Mbps was addressed in the Digital Malta Strategy 2014-2020.

National broadband strategy and policy

Responsible authorities

  • The field of broadband development falls under the responsibility of the Office of the Prime Minister.
  • The Malta Information Technology Agency is the central driver of information and communication technology policy, programmes and initiatives within Government.
  • The national regulatory authority for electronic communications and spectrum management is the Malta Communications Authority (MCA). Through its Information Society arm, the MCA is implementing a number of demand stimulation measures aimed to increase take-up of superfast broadband services. This includes empowering people to have the skills and awareness about how the internet can be used, for example, to achieve a better quality of life, through to personalised information on eGov portals, e-commerce and internet banking and facilities for health and social care. In addition, the MCA has a number of initiatives with a particular focus on small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to support economic growth. This includes the promotion of cloud computing as a business innovator/enabler, mentoring, training and advice specifically targeted at the use of digitally-enabled technologies and other focused activities to support business growth, especially amongst SMEs.

Main aims for broadband development

Malta has published the Digital Malta Strategy 2014-2020. Priority activities for Malta are the further deployment of broadband infrastructure. Malta´s strategy aims at securing 100% coverage with 30 Mbps and 50% take-up rate for 100 Mbps by 2020. The implementation of this national policy includes technology neutrality and a competitive environment. Malta’s digital strategy emphasises both supply and demand-side related aspects in network roll-out, the sharing of existing infrastructure, as well as the promotion of IPv6 as a preparation for the Internet of Things (IoT).

The new Malta Digital Strategy, encompassing the National Broadband Plan, is in preparation and its publication is delayed.
