Third phone company to start up
A third mobile phone operator has announced it is set to start operating in Jersey.

Jersey Telenet will face competition from Cable & Wireless and Jersey Telecom who already operate phone services in the island.

The company, which is part of India's Bharti Group, estimates the service will cost 20m to set up. The group plans to open a shop on Queen Street.

The company was granted permission by the Competition Regulatory Authority.

Jersey Telenet, also trading as Jersey Airtel, will offer basic and advanced digital phone services as well as international long distance calls.

It is the second international venture for the company - it has already set up Telecom Seychelles.
