Jersey has excellent digital infrastructure.
Maintaining and developing this digital infrastructure as both technology and consumer demand evolve will be critical to achieving our digital aspirations.
Government will continue to support projects that improve the reliability, resilience and affordability of Jersey’s infrastructure. By 2019, for example, fibre to the premises will have been rolled out across the Island, delivering some of the highest broadband speeds available anywhere in the world. Government policies will also look further to the future, encouraging innovation and resilience in the telecommunications sector, to ensure that next-generation services are available in Jersey in the long-term.
The delivery of advanced digital infrastructure will be supported by a telecommunications strategy that will describe the specific steps to be taken, including ensuring 1Gb/s broadband availability to every premises, and the optimal use of spectrum so that consumers have access to the range of services they require. In all of this, Government will continue to encourage a competitive market that promotes affordability and a high quality of products and services.
