Jersey Telecoms and Cable & Wireless Open New Communications Link To UK

Press Release

06 December 2000

Jersey Telecoms further strengthened its relationship with global telecommunications provider, Cable & Wireless when senior representative of both companies met in the Island to formally mark the commissioning today of a new high capacity communications link to the UK.

Jersey Telecoms' highly resilient network is linked to the mainland by two submarine fibre optic cables, one running directly from Jersey and the other via Guernsey. A third link in Southern England creates a self-healing ring so that in the unlikely event of a cable break, traffic is automatically re-routed and service maintained.

To add even greater call capacity and offer the opportunity for new services, Cable & Wireless has provided a 155Mbit/s link within the existing fibre optic system that will benefit Jersey Telecoms' customers. The technology employed to carry information over these connections will help provide near unlimited off island call traffic capacity.

The new link connects JT directly to the network of Cable & Wireless, one of the world's leading global telecommunications carriers, and provides even more choice for the interconnection of telephone calls and services off the Island.

Bob Lawrence, Executive Director of Jersey Telecoms said:
"Jersey Telecoms is committed to working with leading global communications companies in order to better serve our customers. Cable & Wireless is just such an organisation and we are pleased to be strengthening our long standing and successful relationship with them."

Also present in Jersey for the opening was Derek Munn, Customer Director, International Carrier Services of Cable & Wireless who said:
"Cable & Wireless is delighted to have this link in place and looks forward to building upon the excellent relationship with Jersey Telecoms to develop a range of enhanced products and services to suit the requirements of our collective customer base."
