JT have pioneered hyperfast fibre broadband services in the Channel Islands for over a decade, completing Jersey’s full-fibre role out in 2018, making it the world’s first provide to complete a full-fibre network. In 2021, that network was ranked the world’s fastest for internet speeds.

By the end of 2026, Guernsey's community fibre project is expected to be completed, bringing fibre connectivity to every home in the Island's network.

But what about fibre for businesses? In this blog, we'll be looking at the benefits fibre connectivity has for businesses across the Channel Islands, and the part it will play in maintaining our reputation as a secure and innovative place to do business.

Access critical information at the speed of light

The primary benefits that every business will experience when using JT Fibre for Business Broadband is rapid speeds and expertise. Fibre connectivity can bring speeds of up to 1000Mbps, which is 50x the speed of the basic ADSL packages that many island businesses use today.

According to Sandisk, businesses could be losing up to a week's worth of work each year due to slow internet speeds. This massive jump in speed performance can bring back that week, boosting your company's output, faster upload, download and transfer times as well as easier document sharing means companies become more efficient.

JT Fibre for Business Broadband, offers more than greater, reliable speeds, our system ensures internet integrity, safeguarded by a range of world-class Cisco routers. This provides faster data transfer speeds for real-time application data, voice and video traffic.

Unlimited, next-level connectivity

What’s more, JT Fibre Broadband also offers unlimited usage, so there are no caps on your data. Our service also includes free fixed IP addresses, which will allow a mail or web server to be added to the connection.

Call and customer support centres need greater bandwidth

Unlike standard office broadband, the type of Internet connection required to run a call or customer support centre has some very specific requirements, especially as both are often prone to consuming their full bandwidth capacity.

JT Fibre Broadband will allow you to better meet the needs of your customers while also expanding your call centre operations. We understand that congestion can hinder speed, and that using a shared internet connection in a managed office does not always work. In a world where video conferencing is very much the norm, higher bandwidth limits will keep you connected to your customers and teams while providing a much higher quality of service.

Improved cloud capabilities

The cloud is more essential to our workflows than ever before and each year, it becomes increasingly entrenched in the way we work. From storing our files to making remote collaboration possible, your business likely relies on the cloud in a variety of ways.

With a Cloud-based system there is no need to have a large server room, your data can be stored in JT’s professionally-protected data centre right here, with no need for it to go off-island.

By upgrading to JT Fibre Broadband we can help you to make working on the cloud far more practical. You’ll have the speed and bandwidth you need to not only better support your current cloud tools but also enable you to adopt more powerful ones making it easier to access applications and large amounts of data remotely.

Long-term cost-savings

Last but not least, JT Fibre Broadband can provide your business with long-term cost savings. The upfront investment not only provides Guernsey-based businesses with a more reliable and faster internet connection, it will result in greater output, less downtime, and reduced overhead in the longterm.
