Sure will launch broadband services in Jersey later this year bringing choice and better value for islanders.

Sure is the largest broadband provider in Guernsey, where users can already enjoy speeds of up to 8 megabits per second (Mbps), and is also the largest provider of internet connectivity across the Channel Islands.

Sure is in discussion to wholesale broadband from Jersey Telecom and will launch a range of broadband services with up to 8Mbps download speeds, four times the maximum currently available in Jersey. With access to the largest internet network across the Channel Islands, Sure will provide consumers and businesses an exciting internet experience. It is working on an aggressive pricing strategy to bring more value to the broadband market place.  

Graham Hughes, Chief Executive, Sure Jersey, commented:

“This is a very exciting time for Sure and for broadband users in Jersey. We are looking to adopt the same aggressive pricing strategy in the broadband market as we continue to adopt in the mobile market. We think competition is good for customers and should allow them to choose their broadband provider based on cost and levels of customer service offered. We expect to launch within months.”

“With the largest share of broadband connections in Guernsey we can offer experience, great customer support and strength and breadth of knowledge in this field while being aggressively priced.”
