Sure’s engineering teams will be deploying long-awaited new mobile infrastructure in the Governor’s Hill area this month.
The work to install the equipment is part of Sure’s continuous investment programme in the island to maintain the quality of its mobile network, which was found to be the best overall in the Isle of Man by an independent study conducted by Systemics Group.
Mike Phillips, Sure’s chief executive in the Isle of Man, said: “We’re making this investment to significantly improve the mobile experience and service to residents.
“With the current coronavirus crisis, this is work is especially important as it will benefit those who are following government guidance to work from home with increased capacity and service.
“This essential work has been agreed and approved by government due to the significant benefits it will deliver. Our engineers are fully aware of the guidelines on social distancing and safe working practices and will be following strict procedures while completing this deployment.”
Customers shouldn’t notice any disruption while the work is undertaken which will ultimately result in a much better experience for them when using their mobile devices and mobile broadband at home. The work is expected to be completed by the end of April.
