JT has been confirmed as the fastest mobile carrier and internet service provider in both Guernsey and Jersey by the global leader in internet performance testing and metrics for broadband and mobile networks.
Results from all networks in the Channel Islands were analysed by Ookla, which runs Speedtest, the world’s most popular internet performance testing service. Consumer-initiated test results using Speedtest by Ookla confirm that JT has faster upload and download speeds than any of its competitors.
The tests were carried out in the first half of this year using industry-approved methodology. Ookla’s results are widely trusted by regulators, trade groups and analysts and are used by virtually every major mobile carrier and internet service provider in the world. Each day, nine million tests are carried out on Speedtest.
Daragh McDermott, Director of Corporate Services at JT, said: “In many ways, this information by Ookla confirms what we already know: that JT has, beyond question, the fastest 4G and broadband networks in the Channel Islands.
Recently, competitors have tried to cast doubt on that fact by complaining about our advertising but Ookla’s results simply endorse what customers have been telling us for a long time.
JT has invested tens of millions of pounds in our 4G and fibre networks across our islands so it is pleasing to receive a third-party endorsement confirming our investment is having a positive impact. That said, we can never rest on our laurels and as the island’s only locally owned provider JT will continue to invest to ensure that Channel Island residents and businesses have resilient, reliable and speedy communications now and for the future.”
Jamie Steven, EVP of Operations at Ookla, said: “We at Speedtest by Ookla congratulate JT for the standout performance of their network speed. The internet is now integral to so many of our lives and it is already becoming difficult to imagine a world without it. JT is ensuring that the Channel Islands will remain at the leading edge of this digital revolution.”
