£19m gigabit package ‘is not a States subsidy for JT’
Before his previous term of office ended last week, Senator Ozouf prepared documents outlining a proposal to help bring the £40 million-plus project to fruition.
However, the Senator denies that the £19 million package is a government subsidy of the activities of a commercial company.
JT wants to install fibre connections into every home and business around the Island to provide access to superfast broadband. Senator Ozouf has previously stated that he believes Gigabit Jersey will help to provide a new strand to the economy and will assist in the Island’s ability to become a world-class centre for information technology businesses.
