JT is short-listed for three awards at national digital awards

JT is short-listed for three awards at the 2018 Connected Britain Awards. Connected Britain is an annual conference. The premier meeting place for the UK’s main stakeholders to come together and discuss, learn and collaborate on the UK’s digital future.

The conference, held in London on 19-20 June, hosts leading names from the digital sector, including national and local government, global telecoms operators, regulators and investors.

The associated Connected Britain Awards have short-listed JT in the Fibre Connectivity, Superfast and IoT award categories alongside national and global brands and operators.

The first two relate to JT’s full-fibre network in Jersey. This year as Jersey will become the world’s first full-fibre island.  So, each household and business will be directly connected to JT’s full-fibre. Evidently, this is a huge digital accolade for Jersey as an island placing it well ahead of the UK and many places in the world.

The IoT shortlisting certainly recognises JT’s success in connecting devices that communicate automatically within the ‘Internet of Things’. JT SIMs now power more than 1,600,000 devices worldwide. This is certainly thanks to JT’s 750 roaming agreements with other mobile network operators, offering an innovative and resilient service.

A testament to the effort and ambition of all our stakeholders

JT Chief Executive Officer Graeme Millar said: “We’re clearly so delighted to be nominated for these prestigious national awards. With almost 40,000 homes and businesses on the full fibre network, Jersey will soon be the first jurisdiction in the world to have 100 percent of broadband premises connected directly to full-fibre. Therefore, we’re immensely proud of that achievement and it is testament to the effort and ambition of all our stakeholders. Also, the support of our business and residential customers, the fantastic team at JT, our suppliers, and the States of Jersey.

“Our work in the IoT space is also ground-breaking. So, I’m humbled that Connected Britain have also recognised our innovation in this growing space. Hence, this brings economic prosperity back to our islands.
