Phone company split up considered
Competition regulators will investigate if Jersey Telecom (JT) could be split up and sold in separate sections.

The company's land-line phone network could be sold separately from its retail and mobile section.

If it goes ahead, the sale of the States-owned business is expected to raise about 200m for the government.

BT, Cable & Wireless and Telefonica - which owns O2 - have expressed interest. But JT's board has not been officially contacted.
