JT Global is aiming to roll out fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband to every household in Jersey, it has been announced.

The company - formerly known as Jersey Telecom - has signed a deal with open access network specialist Netadmin Systems to help complete the project.

This will see all 42,000 premises on the island equipped with a direct fibre broadband connection within the next three years.

Upon completion, broadband subscribers will be able to download data at speeds of up to 100Mb.

Dave Newbold, Chief Operations and Technology Officer at JT Global, said the implementation of a full FTTH network is planned for Jersey.

"With such an advanced network management system soon in place, Jersey is one of the most innovative and commercially viable environments to do business in the Western hemisphere," he stated.

Torbjörn Sandberg, Chief Executive of Netadmin Systems, said JT Telecom is "well ahead" in the planning to implement FTTH to every single property.

"We learned over the past decade in Sweden that it is not enough to lay fibre alone – but an environment is also required in which multiple service providers can thrive and reach the customers simply and easily."
