GO begins testing 4G network

Upon launch, initial achievable maximum download speeds on the network will be several times faster than those available on 3G. 

4 August 2015, 2:36pm
GO has started testing its new fully fibre connected 4G network ahead of its commercial launch later this year. GO’s 4G network will provide unparalleled mobile internet speeds and open up a range of exciting opportunities for customers in areas such as mobile HD TV.

Upon launch, initial achievable maximum download speeds on the network will be several times faster than those available on 3G. These speeds have already been consistently recorded during the current tests.

GO’s 4G network will be the only one in Malta which is fully fibre connected. This will make the network much more resilient, particularly in bad weather, and will deliver the highest possible speeds. The fibre connection also future proofs the network, allowing it to be scaled up seamlessly when the demand arises.

In the build up to the launch of 4G, GO recently simplified its Limitless plans to ensure customers retain control of their mobile data expenditure once 4G speeds become available.  These changes include a €50 monthly cap on data usage, with the option to continue using mobile internet by simply sending an SMS.

GO’s 4G network is being supplied by Nokia Networks using the energy-efficient and compact Nokia Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for next-generation mobile broadband networks.
