Guernsey Fibre is a crucial project for the island, that is boosting economic and social prospects, and one we are hugely proud to deliver.
It's a massive engineering project to upgrade all of broadband and landlines. So we are using local suppliers wherever possible, meaning millions of pounds is being spent with Guernsey businesses and 75 extra jobs.
It's also allowing digital businesses to thrive and have the flexibility to be based anywhere on the island, expanding economic possibilities and fostering creativity and entrepreneurialism.
This uplift in productivity from the ability to work seamlessly from anywhere is expected to provide a 1.1% boost to the economy, all thanks to Guernsey Fibre.**
