JT recognised for supporting SME community in Channel Islands

JT has been named ‘Best Communication Solutions Company in the Channel Islands’ at the 2018 UK Enterprise Awards, which focuses on the ‘SME’ sector.

Small to medium-sized enterprises constitute the vast majority of local businesses and are the engine of the Channel Island economy. JT’s Business Sales team supports this crucial sector and is a trusted partner for thousands of businesses across the islands.

The UK Enterprise Awards are organised by SME News Magazine, which is the UK’s biggest selling publication in the SME sector. JT has been recognised for the breadth of its offering, the positive impact it has in the Jersey and Guernsey communities and its recently completed ground-breaking full-fibre network.

JT was selected by a combination of votes gathered from a network of respected industry partners, peers and SME News’ own rigorous in-house research. JT’s performance over the past 12 months, its innovation and way of working, and its position in the market were all assessed.

Katie Corbett, JT’s Enterprise and Business Services Director, said: “This welcome recognition is down to the great work of everyone at JT, but particularly our pan-island SME team and I’d like to thank them for their efforts. We like to consider ourselves to be trusted partners of our clients, working with them to find the best solutions, with a focus on strategy and best working practices as well as technology. Being the only locally owned telecoms company in the Channel Islands, JT has a genuine desire to play a part in the success of local SMEs.

“We’re proud to give them the tools to grow and develop their business. This year, for instance, JT has connected the last broadband customer to our full-fibre network in Jersey. This means that locally SMEs can benefit from world-leading download and upload speeds, allowing them to take full advantage of the internet, creating more efficient and cost effective ways of working. The technology we provide is changing the way we all do business and it is fantastic for JT and our SME team to have this international recognition.”
