How do I manage my roaming charges?
Roaming bolt-ons There are roaming bolt-ons available to reduce data costs to help you manage your charges while you’re away from the Channel Islands. Click here for more information. Will I get roaming charges for travelling between the Islands? You’re only classed as roaming when your device is connected to a mobile network that isn’t JT's. JT’s mobile network covers the Channel Islands so you can travel between the Islands on the JT network and you won’t incur any roaming charges. How can I see my roaming charges for this billing month? The JT My Account app dashboard gives you an overview of any charges that have happened during this current billing month. It shows you if the charge was for minutes, texts or data whilst roaming.

We’re sorry you’re thinking of leaving JT. Please contact us to speak to the team about this.

If you’re still in contract with us, bear in mind you’ll have to pay the remaining charges of contract to cancel early. Most of our contracts are 24 months, but we do have some that are 12. Also, if you’re looking to change to another provider, there might be connection charges for setting up your new service.

What is broadband speed and how does it work?
The transfer of data from point A to point B is what we call ’Broadband'. It's used every day by billions of people across the world. Whether you use it on your computers, laptop, tablet, smart phone, watch, headset or home heating and security system, broadband keeps everyone connected.

What does Megabits per second mean? 

Broadband speed is measured in Megabits per second, usually written as Mb or Mbps (as in 24Mb or 24Mbps). It’s the rate at which data is transferred either from (download) or to (upload) a website.

What is a Gigabyte? 

A gigabyte is a measure of volume of digital data. There are 1,024 Megabytes in a Gigabyte.

Your monthly broadband plan may have a certain number of 'Megabytes' or ‘Gigabytes’ as your monthly allowance (1million MBs, 200GB for example). Every time you access mobile data you’re transferring digital information from point A to point B by either sending information out, or receiving information in. This information is transmitted in digital chunks, or ‘bytes’ so depending on the size of the information you’re sending (uploading a photo or downloading an email etc) a certain number of bytes will be used. The simple table below shows how the volume of data used is measured.

1,024 Bytes 1 Kilobyte
1,024 Kilobytes 1 Megabyte
1,024 Megabytes 1 Gigabyte
1,024 Gigabytes 1 Terabyte
For example, an email may be 2.1Mb in ‘size’. Sending or receiving this will use 2.1 Megabits of your 100GB allowance.

Can I have a community alarm?
What is a Community Alarm or Horizon unit? A Community Alarm, or Horizon unit, are devices which can be activated to call the emergency services. They’re installed in the homes of those who are frail, elderly people who live alone in the community and for people with disabilities. More information can be found here. How much will it cost? If a client is on income support benefit there is no charge. Otherwise the charges are based on the rental of £29.70 per quarter, plus GST, which is payable to JT Global. Application for an alarm The method of applying for an alarm is initially through the person's GP or Family Nursing and Home Care. The application is then passed to the Community Alarm Coordinator, who will then arrange for an alarm to be supplied and fitted and will explain the operation of the alarm to the person and where necessary, to any family and friends who are key-holders. The Alarm The alarm system consists of a base unit with an integral telephone built in, together with a pendant which the person wears round their neck and depresses a red button to request assistance. Wrist type pendants are also available. JT cannot support landline customers with a Lifeline alarm unit with Sure. They are therefore not eligible for JT landline.

Scam and Fraud Awareness

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Nuisance/Scam Calls
There are a number of different types of nuisance/scam calls out there. Whilst JT work hard to minimise the number of unwanted calls received by our customers it is inevitable that some of them may get through. Below we have described the most common types of unwanted calls and what you can do to minimise any risk to yourself and others.

Phone Scams

Fraud over the phone, also known as Vishing, is when a fraudster calls claiming they are from a bank or other trusted organisation in an attempt to gather personal information about you (such as bank account details, passwords etc) which they can then use to steal money/access to services from you. They may have already gathered some basic information about you in order to sound authentic and have the ability to change the telephone number that appears on your phone to something genuine.

If you receive a call that claims to be from a bank or other trusted organisation, please remember the following:

  • A genuine bank or organisation will never contact you to ask for your PIN or full password.
  • Only give out personal or financial details for those services you have consented to, that you trust and are expecting to be contacted by.
  • If in doubt, call the bank or organisation back on a trusted number before giving out any details.
  • Don’t be rushed into making a decision.
  • Fraudsters often try to pressure you into transferring money or agreeing to hand over personal information.
  • A trusted organisation wont mind waiting.
  • You can report these calls to us on 01534 882882 and we will investigate and endeavour to block where appropriate.
  • If you have fallen victim to a scam of this nature, please contact the States of Jersey Police on 01534 612612 or online via www.jersey.police.uk
Scam & Fraud Awareness - Marketing ‘Cold’ Calling
Sales and marketing organisations may try to contact you to out of the blue to push all manner of products and services. If you are not looking to buy anything they are selling these calls can be considered a nuisance.The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) runs two free registration schemes designed to reduce the amount of unwanted phone (or fax) calls received from sales and marketing organisations.

By registering your telephone number with them, the DMA can ensure that your number is no longer available to organisations, including charities and voluntary bodies, who might telephone you with offers and information you do not want to receive.

You can also register with TPS online at www.tpsonline.org.uk

Scam & Fraud Awareness - Malicious, indecent or offensive calls
Making a malicious, indecent or offensive call is a criminal offence. Although not a common occurrence, if you are a victim, please contact the States of Jersey Police on 01534 612612 in the first instance. In addition, if you contact us on 01534 882882 and we will do all we can to help.
Scam & Fraud Awareness - Scam Texts
Otherwise known as Smishing (SMS Phishing) these work the same way as scam calls where fraudsters purporting to be from trusted organisations are attempting to gain personal information from you in order to unlawfully access funds/services.If you receive an SMS of this nature please report to us and/or the States of Jersey Police.
Scam & Fraud Awareness - Stolen Phones
If you lose your phone or it is stolen and it lands in the wrong hands the implications to you may be more than just losing your mobile device. If access is gained to your phone you could be opening yourself up to the following risks:
  • The personal information stored on the device could be used for further criminal acts (e.g. identity theft, subscriber fraud etc.)
  • Even if the device is locked the SIM could be removed and used to make calls that will end up on your next bill.
If your phone is stolen on-island or while you’re away on holiday, please contact us as soon as possible on 01534 882882 to ensure that your service is suspended and no further charges are incurred. Many people think disabling the device is sufficient, but this does not stop fraudsters from using your SIM card in another phone and racking up huge bills at your expense. In order to protect your data ensure that there is a secure PIN on both your device and SIM and make sure that you keep your device software up to date.
Scam & Fraud Awareness - Email Scams
In a similar way to calls and texts, criminals also ‘phish’ by contacting you via email. Always be aware that unsolicited emails that look to be from a known and trusted organisation can easily be faked. Unless the email is expected, never click on any links embedded in an email before verifying the authenticity of the email. They might promise your huge rewards, lottery wins, lost inheritances and so on and often they will include requests for upfront payments or private information such as bank details. Use your common sense and if in doubt delete the email. If it looks too good to be true - it probably is. 7 ways to spot an email you’ve been sent is a scam:
  • The sender’s address doesn’t match the website address of the organisation it says it’s from. Roll your mouse pointer over the sender’s name to reveal its true address.
  • The email doesn’t use your proper name – using something like “Dear customer” instead.There’s a sense of urgency, asking you to act immediately.
  • There’s a prominent website link which may seem like the proper address, but with one character different.
  • There’s a request for personal information.
  • There are spelling and grammatical errors.
  • The entire text of the email is within an image rather than the usual text format and the image contains an embedded hyperlink to a bogus site. Again roll your mouse pointer over the link to reveal its true destination.
