      Melita have had Fibre Optics for years, it goes to a hub station somewhere and then nowhere, everything thereafter is copper wire! So what is the point of having a second Fibre Optic cable doing nothing? Or is that just Melita conning everyone they have Fibre Optics to there home?

      Many of Melita and Go’s services have fibre optic to the box on the street and in many villages now they have it to the door.
      The new fibre optic cable is for additional capacity.
