Jersey has one of the fastest broadband speeds in the world according to a new international league table.

The island has climbed seven places from 2018 to third position.

The price comparison website cable.co.uk has published its 2019 broadband speed league table, which has Jersey at number three, behind Taiwan and Singapore,

Guernsey is at number 44, which is better than its 2018 position of 54.

There are plans to improve internet speeds in Guernsey in future.

This autumn we'll be adding new, smaller units to our network which will deliver faster speeds to those customers who don't live near a larger MSAN unit.

– Justin Bellinger, Sure's chief digital officer

JT has been talking to the States as it looks towards its next phase of investment in Guernsey.

This next phase will include investments in even faster 4G, new 5G and more fibre being rolled out across Guernsey. We know that customers want faster, more reliable speeds and by working closely with the States of Guernsey, we plan to invest to ensure those requirements are satisfied.

– Daragh McDermott, JT
