Míla ehf.'s telecommunications network connects individuals and companies and is the hub of most telecommunications in Iceland, in addition to connecting the country with the rest of the world. Míla was founded in April 2007, to operate the telecommunications network. Míla's activities build on over 100 years of experience.
Míla owns and operates a modern copper system, a fiber optic cable and microwave system covering the entire country.
Míla's telecommunications system is robust and diverse, based mainly on two systems: trunk network and access network. Míla's system can be likened to a telecommunications thoroughfare for voice telephones, cell phones, data transport, and television and radio broadcasts of other companies. Míla sells its products at wholesale to companies with telecommunications license.
Míla's network has bandwidth conforming to the requirements of the market each time. In 1986 the transport capacity of the first stage of the fiber optic cable from Reykjavik to Selfoss was 140 Mb/s. This transport capacity could carry 2000 voice channels, and it was thought at the time that it would suffice indefinitely. Now times have changed, and the need for bandwidth is expected to increase annually by 130%.
Míla heavily emphasizes reliability and operational security, and there will be continuous development to maintain leadership in the telecommunications market. The company plans to seek the best solutions each time and provide professional service.
