JT’s 2017 directory celebrates old and new buried treasure

The 2017 Telephone Directory is launching in Jersey this week, with its cover showcasing both Jersey’s rich history and the investments that are being made into the Islands future.

Coins featured on the directory cover were unearthed in 2012, when two local men discovered a treasure of 2,000-year-old compacted gold, silver and copper coins and jewellery in a field in Grouville. The hoard has since been disassembled and is now on display at La Hougue Bie.

At the same time as the discovery, JT launched its ‘Gigabit Jersey’ project – replacing its long standing copper network with fibre-optic cables running directly to all homes and businesses in Jersey. Five years later, over 70% of properties now enjoy super-fast broadband running down reliable and scalable fibre, and the project is due to be completed in 2018.
