Internet Connectivity and Costs

During the last 15 years the telecommunications sector in Malta has been characterised by a privatisation and de-regulation drive. Since 2003, the Maltese telecoms market was liberalised and its regulation falls under the power of the Malta Communications Authority (MCA). The market in 2012 is characterised by 3 large players (GO, Melita and Vodafone) which are all capable of offering quadruple or triple play. With these 3 main players, one also finds a number of small players.
