SmartGroup Malta, a publicly listed real estate, construction, healthcare, and hospitality provider, has selected Melita Business to provide telecommunications services for the new Segond Hotel located in Xaghra, Gozo. Through this agreement, Melita Business will be providing 1,000Mbps fibre powered internet to the hotel as well as installing TVs, WiFi and telephony services throughout the building.

Chev. Franck Massicard, Group CEO at SmartGroup Malta, said, “As we look forward to a busy summer, it’s important for us to know that we have a telecommunications services partner we can rely on. Melita Business have shown us that they are able to offer the best infrastructure and dedicated customer support, enabling us to provide our guests with the best service possible whilst enjoying a stay at The Segond Hotel.”

Malcolm Briffa, Director of Business Services at Melita Limited, said, “Melita’s unique ability to deliver gigabit internet speeds nationwide continues to attract business customers looking for the best possible connectivity. For the hospitality sector, this is particularly important as it not only helps to make operations as efficient as possible but also enhances the guest experience.” 

Robert Runza, Director of Business Development at Melita Limited said “Melita Business is committed to supporting companies such as SmartGroup Malta at this important time of recovery for the tourism industry. Post pandemic guests have significantly increased their dependency on connectivity, requiring hotels to increase their bandwidth capabilities and in-room entertainment services. With SmartGroup Malta’s vision to provide an enhanced guest experience, premium TV channels and high-speed internet has been made available across all 51 rooms of the Segond Hotel and across their newly opened restaurant called Francie, thanks to the most advanced infrastructural equipment installed by Melita.”
