  2. You can thank me for installing the islands original Jersey Telecoms
    internet connection then :)


    They had ghastly Al cable everywhere and DSL was never going to work
    properly - looks like they have simply bypassed it now.

  3. It's the best way to build a next-gen network - skip intermediate
    steps entirely, replace horrible ancient old tech (aliminium wires,
    ewwww) with shiny (or in this case transparent) new stuff.

    Does require very patient customers (or a rigid monopoly!), or easy
    swapping between suppliers.

  4. And it helps when you have a very small geographical area to cover...

    a change and no doubt will be for some time to come.

    Look down the list for alanpeach3 on Jersey Telecom 957.71 mbit/s download
    117.92 upload ping time 0ms.

    957.71 is technically a gigabit and it is only until the first hop after
    which speeds can do down pretty quickly

    Fair enough, on this screen the only numbers visible without scrolling
    are 40Mb/s and 67ms ping, the lists aren't visible at all ... isn't it
    possible to link direct to the individual test?

    And he can thank someone I know for the musical content of the "Join
    Together with JT" adverts. I imagine the festive version is running at
    the moment.

    Do Les Iles Anglo-Normandes get their broadband from Normandy?

  14. last time I looked there were fat pipes from London and from France.

    What I installed had twin pipes to jersey and guernsey from the UK and
    a link between the two islands as well. And proper routing to connect to
    any other tier 1 provider in (envisaged then) France.

    IIRC France telecom bought either jersey or guernsey telecom, or both.


    So there are at least three ways out of the islands IP wise, possibly
    more. And plenty of inter-island subsea linkages too.

  15. From what I can see from Google searches, Jersey Telecom (now JT) is
    still Jersey-owned.
    Guernsey Telecom was sold (allegedly given away) to C&W.

    their results obtained when testing against the local server
