Island Games competitors will find it easier than ever to keep in touch and stay up to date with results in Aland.
Sure mobile customers are already able to make and receive calls, but an agreement between Sure and Alands Mobiltelefon will now enable anyone on a Sure contract to use data (emails, social networking sites etc) whilst they are in Aland.
“Sure is delighted that we have been able to ensure that the new roaming GPRS agreement is in place before the Island Games starts on Saturday. It means that our local sports competitors and their team managers with BlackBerry smartphones or internet-enabled handsets will be able to keep up to date with the latest results on the official Natwest Island Games website wherever they are and whenever they wish to,” said Sure’s Jersey Chief Executive, Graham Hughes.
“It also means that they will be able to keep colleagues, friends and family back home up to date with what’s going on via regular emails and social networking updates. We wish all competitors the very best of luck.”
