Jersey Telecom launches gigabit broadband

DECEMBER 26, 2010 -- Jersey Telecom has equipped the Castle Quay development on the Isle of Jersey’s St. Helier Waterfront with 1-Gbps services via fiber to the home (FTTH) on a trial basis. The FTTH trial is part of the Gigabit Isles initiative under the JT Group’s five-year strategy.

The new 1-Gbps FTTH broadband service is 50X faster than the 20 Mbps services that Jersey Telecom has just launched. The 20-Mbps services will be available to more than 25% of Island households by the end of this year.

“Launching our 1-Gbps fiber-optic broadband connection at Castle Quay is a real landmark both for the JT Group and for Jersey as a whole,” says Graeme Millar, CEO of JT Group. “It means the world’s fastest broadband speed, with the possible exception only of Japan, is now available to residents of this development. Broadband is already changing the way we live our lives, and I think that change is only likely to become more significant in the future. Making gigabit speeds available to more and more customers is a key part of our strategy in order to allow the Island to fully benefit from all the internet has to offer”.

Over the next 5 years, Jersey Telecom says it plans to replace its copper cable network with fiber, at a likely cost of around £40 million.
