Net users offered 8MB broadband

Jersey's current top broadband rate is 2MB

The speed at which internet users can surf the net is set to increase in August, Jersey Telecom (JT) says.

The current top broadband rate is 2Mbps (megabits per second). New services will offer 2Mbps, 4Mbps and 8Mbps.

JT said pricing details would come out in July and that each customer's phone line would need testing.

JT Managing Director Tim Ringsdore said the test would tell customers what speed their line could achieve and what tariff would then be most suitable.

The new services, which have been tried out by a group of 100 customers, will allow internet users to download and stream high definition television and movies, listen to music and play online games at higher speeds.
