Faster broadband services will be available to hundreds of households in Guernsey from next week.
Cable and Wireless (C&W) has picked 600 customers to be upgraded to help trial the new speed.
About two thirds of local households have a broadband internet connection, but C&W has been working to upgrade the service to two megabytes per second.
Feedback from users initially using the service will help determine a schedule for rolling it out island-wide.
If no problems are found, the company will begin to upgrade other households over the next few weeks.
The highest speed currently available to homes is one megabyte per second.
