From our origins in 1888, JT is owned, and headquartered in the Channel Islands where we are the largest local operator. We employ over 500 employees with offices across the Channel Islands and around the world.
Our clear purpose is to connect our customers to their sustainable future. To do that, we form long-standing partnerships with leading communications businesses to deliver the products and services expected from a full-service, world-class communications provider.
We have completed a socially inclusive project to install a full-fibre broadband network in Jersey, making the island the first jurisdiction in the world to have 100% full-fibre connectivity to all premises, with the third fastest broadband speeds in the world. From January 2020, JT’s minimum guaranteed broadband speeds doubled from 250 Mbit/s to 500 Mbit/s with plans to increase this to 1 Gbit/s.
In Guernsey, we are partnering with Agilisys to support the digital transformation of government services.
Our Channel Island customers also enjoy an award-winning 4G mobile network, with 5G trials currently underway, enabling islanders to benefit from advanced connectivity.
Globally, our Internet of Things business provides cellular connectivity and remote management of devices worldwide, as well as fraud protection and bulk messaging services, with JT powering close to 10 millions SIMs worldwide.
In April 2020 JT worked with the Government of Jersey, Digital Jersey and the Island’s telecom operators to increase all fibre broadband connections to a symmetrical 1 Gbit/s at no extra cost. This joint initiative supported the community as a whole when an increase in home-working, home-learning and home-isolating became the new norm during COVID-19.
