The potential of what one can achieve and do with a faster and better internet connection is considerable. Statistics published by the Malta Communications Authority earlier this year showed that just over 25 percent of local businesses have fiber optic connections. more connected and where data flows at high speeds.
Over the past year, Epic Communications Limited has begun rolling out its own fiber optic internet for the home. Its success is largely due to Epic’s workforce and endless drive to make an impact. So far, 10,000 addresses have been covered and are eligible for Epic’s 2000 mbps service in Mosta and Attard.
Tamas Banyai, CEO of Epic, highlighted how the company is responding to this reality. “As part of our vision to bring great value to everyone, we have rolled out the fastest fiber speeds in Malta, 20 times faster than most connections, for the price of a standard access package. With this solution, we are making faster connectivity available to everyone.”
The Epic team contacts the communities where the service is available, with a dedicated team visiting homes and explaining the benefits of the service. Epic has expanded its retail presence by opening new outlets in Mosta, Attard and San Gwann, making it easier for anyone interested in learning more about the Epic’s fiber optic internet. When customers switch from their current service provider to Epic, they get the first six months free.
For Malta to achieve its goal of becoming a Gigabit society, the use of high-speed fiber internet by both private homes and businesses must increase. Thanks to Epic, 10,000 homes and businesses are now one step closer to experiencing Gigabit speeds and connecting to the network of the future.
