Vodafone comes up with best New Year’s resolution ever Vodafone Malta has saluted City Gate Valletta that used to host its promoters daily in style. On 4 different mornings, Vodafone was roaming the streets of Valletta to give away free merchandise to passers by.

Dedicated animators entertained all those present who responded positively to these activities. This was Vodafone's way to celebrate the work of its promoters and thank all its customers for their support.

Vodafone constantly listens to what its customers have to say and 2013 promises to be the year which kicks off with a bang. On New Year, Vodafone announced that it will remove its promoters from Valletta's entrance. An announcement which was placed on the company's Facebook page and which attracted more than 1,600 likes. This statement was flooded with comments and suggestions.

"This is our New Year's resolution," said Sandro Pisani, Head of Marketing from Vodafone Malta. "We listened to what people had to say and we decided that we should remove our promoters from Valletta. We encourage people who would like to benefit from our latest offers to visit our shop in Republic Street instead."

2012 has been a very big year for Vodafone with numerous offers and involvement in major events taking place in Malta, offering customers exclusive access to the latest technology and top events. 2013 promises to be yet another exciting year kicking off with what Vodafone thought would be a great start to the New Year and promising to bring more value to its customers.

164 sets, 36,000 calls, 5 men - The tech behind l-Istrina Article By: di-ve.com news editorial@di-ve.com 36,000 telephone calls from 164 telephones, 18 TV’s, 17 ADSL installations and 3 VDSL installations formed the telecommunication setup behind L-Istrina event that was held on December 26 in Verdala. This installation took five people 400 hours to install and ran without a single glitch albeit the traffic in terms of connectivity. The man behind the GO Technical team at Verdala Charles Mansueto, said that keeping a happy face and serene attitude was hard given what was at stake, “considering that we only had two full days of testing before the actual event, kept us tingling until midnight”. The technical man described the task as the cherry on the cake for 2012 and even if it involved 10 hours of anxiety, he’d do all over again any time, any day. The GO team that was behind the live video conference between the President and the Puttinu Apartments in Sutton explained that, they will cherish the experience for as long as we live. “Technology today brings people closer, so we thought of making direct contact with those who actually benefit from L-Istrina Live,” a team member said. This effort was possible with the help of Matthew James Mifsud from Vianet Systems who kindly leased the “Life Size” video conferencing equipment and Wayne Lee Valentine who volunteered to personally install this system in Sutton. “The installation for L-Istrina is a perfect example of GO’s ability to deliver highly available networks and enterprise solutions to our customers. The connectivity options and equipment we used for this task are part of our on-going national investment to provide increasingly resilient networks” stated Deputy Chief Technical Officer at GO Kelvin Camenzuli. GO has provided fibre solutions to business customers, it is the first and only operator in Malta with

two international fibre-optic cables and now it is the first operator offering FTTH. “Apart from the expertise of managing the project since its inception in 1995, GO’s fibre and copper cabling is the only way such an installation could experience such flawless results” added Kelvin Camenzuli. L-Istrina is one of GO’s most important CSR pillars which the company endorsed since its first edition in 1995. Apart from the €20,000 donated during the event, GO waivers all the other costs related to the installation, man hours and materials. Moreover, the company also waivers all revenue shares related to the SMS’s and calls during the event. Last year, this sum reached €64,492. Considering the new record achieved during this year’s edition, this sum is due to reach a record sum as well.
