Mobile carrier Epic will be investing €40 million in the modernisation of its national mobile network, which it says will pave the way for the roll-out of 5G in Malta.
Epic has signed a long-term partnership with Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson, for it to prove “the best 5G experience in Malta”. Ericsson has been selected as Epic’s Radio Access Network (RAN) provider partner for the network modernisation project.
“Our aim is to make a quantum leap with our award-winning network, taking it to the next stage and, continue to provide the best network in malta. Our modernisation project is going to bring wider coverage and faster speeds and is also going to make 5G available to customers,” Epic Malta’s CEO Tamas Banyai was quoted as saying.
“We are pleased that following a very rigorous technology partner selection process, we are accelerating the evolution of our network to step into Malta’s digital future.”
This news of Epic’s network modernisation project follows the operator’s more recent announcement regarding the partnership with Phoenix Tower International (PTI), which helps Epic accelerate its investment plans in its network and digital services.
Epic is owned by Monaco Telecom, which bought Vodafone Malta in a €250 million last year. The company has since been rebranded to Epic.
