GO has launched Malta’s only fully fibre connected 4G network, which delivers unrivalled superfast and reliable mobile internet.  

From today, all subscribers on GO Limitless One, Two and Three mobile plans will be upgraded to 4G for free. These mobile plans offer customers peace of mind when using 4G thanks to the 4G-friendly data rates and other functionality which ensures that customers are in control of their spend at all times.

Kurt Camilleri, Chief Commercial Officer at GO, said: “GO had embarked on a multi-year investment to ensure that our 4G network is 100 per cent fibre connected. This means that we are now able to offer customers a unique experience both in terms of speed and reliability. By including 4G in our updated Limitless One, Two and Three plans, GO is delivering further value to customers this Christmas.”

GO’s 4G network will initially be available in high traffic areas enabling 60 per cent of the population, with a nationwide rollout to follow shortly thereafter. It will achieve maximum download speeds that are several times faster than those available on 3G, opening up a range of exciting opportunities for customers in areas such as mobile HD TV and video. The fact that the network is fully fibre connected will mean it is much more resilient and can scale up seamlessly as demand arises.

Customers on Limitless One, Two and Three plans who use up their mobile internet bundle will be charged €2 per 100MB thereafter. They will also receive an SMS notification every time they use up an extra 500MB on top of their monthly mobile internet bundle, equivalent to €10, up to a maximum of €50. For further use, customers will then be able to buy an additional mobile internet bundle, at their discretion.  In the coming months, GO will also make 4G available to customers on other mobile prepaid and postpaid plans.

GO’s 4G network has been supplied by Nokia Networks and Alcatel Lucent using their latest technology for next-generation mobile broadband networks. More information on 4G is available from all GO retail outlets and exclusive resellers and from the website www.go.com.mt. Terms and conditions apply.
