Superfast broadband cabling leads to major award for JT
Monday 25th February 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
JT GROUP has won a major international award for its programme of installing a superfast fibre broadband cabling network that will connect to every Island home.
The telecommunications business was chosen as operator of the year by the Fibre to the Home Europe Council at a prestigious ceremony in London and lauded for its foresight in embarking on the ambitious installation programme.
However, at home in Jersey the project has been criticised for being well behind schedule with questioned also raised about its viability.
But those problems were left behind when JT Group chief executive Graeme Millar collected the award in front of an audience of global telecom companies and specialist technical firms at the Excel Arena in London’s Docklands last week.
