1Gb fibre broadband trial launched in Jersey

Households and businesses in Jersey are benefiting from superfast broadband speeds thanks to a new fibre trial launched by a local provider.

Jersey Telecom is delivering broadband with speeds of up to 1Gb across a network of fibre cables.

Residents living in the Castle Quays development in St Helier were the first to enjoy the new service, which is believed to be the fastest outside South Korea.

"We don't think anyone else is doing this at the moment," said Jersey Telecom chief executive Graeme Miller.

"One of the most difficult things is demonstrating the speed because we have not been able to find any commercial sites that provide a gigabit link that people can use."

The price of the service, once commercially available, has not yet been confirmed. However, Mr Miller did indicate that he expects it to be around £100 a month.

It comes after the Shetland Islands Council got the green light from the European Union to launch a new superfast broadband project that will link fibre cables with mainland Scotland.
