Mapping broadband coverage in Malta

Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2012 - key results for Malta

One of the European Union’s most ambitious targets is to make sure that all its citizens can get access to superfast broadband at home, if they choose, by 2020. A new study by Point Topic shows Malta is now over 99% towards achieving that aim.

National coverage by broadband technology

Malta was by far the smallest in land area and most densely populated study country. Using the new study definition for rural households, only 1% of households in Malta were located in areas with fewer than 100 people per kilometre.

In terms of technology coverage, DSL, cable, WiMAX, HSPA and satellite all covered nearly all households in Malta in 2012. At the end of the year, Malta had not yet launched LTE services and only had a very limited FTTP network. But since the cable network is all upgraded to Docsis 3, nearly all premises could access NGA services. VDSL was available to 75% of households.

Precisely identifying coverage at the 1% of households defined as rural was not possible. However we estimate that these will include the final remaining households not served by NGA services in Malta.
