VegaStream appoints Keyworld as Reseller for Malta
VegaStream a global leader in the design and development of
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) gateways has signed a
partnership agreement with Malta's leading ISP Keyworld Ltd.
This alliance now means that Keyworld can now deliver highly-
reliable, low cost and fully flexible telephone services to anywhere
in the world from anywhere in the Maltese Islands with their
newly launch OneVoice service.
The partnership also means that Keyworld now offers a Toll by
pass service using the Vega range of products to their enterprise
customers within Malta and beyond.
Earlier this year to help promote this new partnership VegaStream
Keyworld and VoIP carrier Deltathree held a 1day product launch
in Malta which helped successfully launch the product offering in
Malta. It was attended by over 100 personnel from key industries
such as Healthcare and Travel the launch gained impressive
feedback and interest. Over 80 telecommunications companies
worldwide are now deploying or trialing Pace Vega gateways.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is the method by which voice
is digitized and sent through the Internet in digital packets rather
than in the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public
switched telephone network (PSTN).
After becoming the first ISP to start operations in Malta, back in
1995, Keyworld grew to become one of Malta's largest ISPs. They
offer Dialup, ADSL and Leased line services as well as Fax2email
and remote backup solutions. In January 2003, Keyworld became
the first company in Malta to offer Low Cost International Phone
Calls through its One Voice VoIP service. Their aim is to make
Malta a hub for IP services. More information can found at
