Broadband consumers in Guernsey are set to gain access to enhanced broadband deals, it has been announced.
Local internet service provider (ISP) Wave Telecom has announced plans to invest in its telecoms infrastructure, in a move which will have clear service benefits for businesses and households on the island.
As part of wider plans to improve broadband services in the Channel Islands, the ISP will double the maximum download capability of mobile broadband packages from 7.2Mb to 14.4Mb.
It is hoped that the upgrade work will be completed by the end of this year.
Graeme Millar, Chief Executive at Wave's parent company the JT Group, said the biggest threat to the broadband provider was standing still.
"By following this strategy there is a huge opportunity for us to make the Channel Islands into a world class telecommunications hub for Europe," he added.
Earlier this week, Jersey Telecom announced plans to provide high-speed broadband to a quarter of the households in Jersey by 2012.
