Guernsey maximum broadband speeds to double

Maximum broadband internet speeds will be increasing across the Bailiwick of Guernsey from Monday.

Cable and Wireless is upgrading the network from a maximum of 4Mb per second to 8Mb per second.

Factors such as the computer's distance from the telephone exchange will dictate the actual connection speed.

Cable and Wireless is installing additional street boxes to boost the speed for those people who live further from the telephone exchanges.

Users who buy their service from Cable and Wireless will get the speed increase at no cost.

Anyone who gets the service from a different internet service provider will also get the increased speed, but it will be down to their provider to decide if they will have to pay more.
