Improving island life

Watch what some familiar local faces say about what high speed Fibre connectivity means to them, why Guernsey needs Fibre, and how it will improve island life.

Connecting Our Community

All of our lives are becoming increasingly digital and internet services are more vital than ever. Guernsey Fibre is going to cover the whole island and provide fast, stable, reliable connections into every property, bringing the possibility of true 1 gigabit-per-second coverage to all.

Fibre for life

Unlike a copper network, fibre optic cables are extremely resilient to heat, humidity and extreme weather conditions, so Sure is future-proofing your home’s connectivity for years to come as well as providing a more reliable broadband experience for islanders. 

Fibre is a more sustainable option. The amount of energy needed to send light through a fibre optic cable is considerably less than what is needed to transmit an electrical signal through copper cables, so there will also be emissions savings. This project will make Sure’s broadband both more efficient and more environmentally friendly.  

Fibre everywhere

Rolling out fibre broadband around the island is a huge and exciting undertaking. Beginning in early 2022, we will be connecting around 30,000 properties. The plan is to deliver fibre to almost all properties on the island by the end of 2026.

Guernsey Fibre is going to cover the whole island with superfast broadband, bringing the possibility of true 1 gigabit-per-second coverage to all. That’s up to 50 times faster than today’s basic connection speed*.  This means there's no more battling for bandwidth, even in the busiest home. 

* 1,001Mbps average speed attainable using Ookla Speed test app built in to the router. Test conducted in August 2021.

A fibre-powered economy

Guernsey Fibre is a crucial project that will help boost the island’s economic and social prospects.  The fibre broadband rollout is a massive engineering project, and we will use local suppliers wherever possible, meaning millions of pounds spent with Guernsey businesses and the creation of around 75 jobs. It will allow digital businesses to thrive and have the flexibility to be based anywhere on the island, expanding economic possibilities and fostering creativity and entrepreneurialism. The uplift in productivity from the ability to work seamlessly from anywhere is expected to provide a 1.1% boost to the economy.**
