As part of its ongoing network modernisation programme, Epic has been developing its network in several local villages, with the most recent being Mellieha, Hal Tarxien and Ghajnsielem in Gozo. The effects of this development can already be felt by several clients residing in these areas.

“The increase in urbanisation of several towns and villages around Malta and Gozo has posed new challenges on the capacity of mobile networks and network coverage, particularly indoors,” says Mario Cordina, Epic’s Head of Mobile Access Networks, adding that “this is further impacted by modern construction materials which affect indoor coverage.”

“Epic’s network modernisation programme is intended to address these new challenges with the deployment of stronger network infrastructure, technology and other techniques aimed to enhance the indoor coverage all over the Maltese islands,” he explains.

Additionally, the network modernisation programme aims to strengthen the backhaul network and roll-out additional Epic Fibre sites to meet the current and future capacity demands. The network modernisation programme is seeing an investment worth more than €40 million, that will pave the way for stronger 5G.

In the coming months, Epic will continue implementing the next generation network architecture that will allow the telecommunications company to achieve its long-term strategic objective: that of building Malta’s strongest network by providing technology that is generations ahead, merged with superfast speeds at the comfort of any Epic client’s fingertips, from everywhere.
