Connecting Our Community
All of our lives are becoming increasingly digital and internet services are more vital than ever. We know it’s essential that network performance and connection speeds are able to deal with our island’s future demand.
Guernsey Fibre reflects an investment of £37.5million. This Sure project is being carried out in partnership with the States of Guernsey which is providing part-funding of up to £12.5m. Working together in this way means you have added reassurance that this is a long-term investment that will benefit you for years to come as it becomes a crucial part of the island’s infrastructure.
We have started connecting some of the 30,000 properties and the plan is to deliver fibre to almost all properties on the island by the end of 2026.
Benefits to Guernsey
This investment is a boost to the local economy with the direct impact being the creation of 75 additional jobs and millions of pounds flowing to local suppliers that Sure is using. It is also expected to have an indirect impact of an uplift of 1.1% to the economy generated by more digital activity.*
