GO launches superfast 500Mbps internet

The new GO 500Mbps plan, which includes Limitless monthly download and upload usage, will transform the customer experience of using the internet.

Following the recent launch of GO fibre, through which GO is investing €50 million in order to deliver fibre optic connections directly into customers’ homes, the Company has now launched a new 500Mbps superfast internet plan. 

The new GO 500Mbps plan, which includes Limitless monthly download and upload usage, will transform the customer experience of using the internet. With a download speed of 500Mbps and an upload speed of 20Mbps, customers will now be able to run multiple internet devices at home simultaneously and download or upload large volumes of data in seconds.

Kurt Camilleri, GO’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “GO’s Fibre-To-The-Home project is a real game changer. Having a fibre optic connection directly into your modem at home will transform the way you use the internet. With a 500Mbps connection, it will now take less than 1 second to download ten songs. It’s not just the volumes of data but the number of devices; computers, laptops, smartphones, televisions, even alarms, kettles and fridges, that can all be connected and controlled seamlessly thanks to superfast fibre internet connections.”

The national roll out of GO fibre is expected to take five years but more than 17,000 homes in the Sliema, St Julian’s and Lija areas already have access to fibre connections and can therefore start benefitting from fibre internet speeds. A total of 33,000 homes are expected to be passed by the end of 2015. Those who wish to experience what a fibre connection means, and to try out the much talked about Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, can also visit the GO fibre stand at The Point on Level -2 every Saturday until the end of May.

The GO fibre 500Mbps internet plan is available as a standalone service and as an add-on to any GO Limitless Home Pack or Limitless Duo Pack Plan starting from €115 per month in those areas which are already fibre enabled.
