The capability of Guernsey's broadband network has increased as of today (Monday January 10th), the BBC has reported.
According to the broadcaster, internet service provider (ISP) Cable and Wireless is upgrading the network to deliver faster broadband speeds.
Consumers and businesses on the Channel Island will be able to download at a rate of up to 8Mb, double the previous 4Mb maximum.
Additional street boxes are in the process of being installed across the island, enabling people who live further away from the nearest telephone exchange to receive enhanced services.
Cable and Wireless has pledged to deliver improved broadband speeds to its customers without charging them more for their broadband deals.
The BBC reports that customers with other ISPs could face higher charges, at the discretion of the broadband provider.
Back in November, local ISP Wave Telecom announced plans to double the download capability of its mobile broadband packages on the island.
