Isle of Man-based broadband provider Sure, a division of Bahrain’s Batelco, has announced plans to invest GBP2 million (USD2.5 million) in the deployment of a business-to-business (B2B) fibre-optic telecoms network to provide businesses in Douglas, Castletown and the Isle of Man Business Park with an improved suite of products and services. The operator says that work to install the new infrastructure is already underway and, when complete, it will connect directly into Sure’s local and international networks offering Manx-based businesses worldwide connectivity and a range of ‘innovative’ services and solutions. The firm’s press release notes that the upgrade will help Sure ‘to become an end-to-end provider of enterprise connectivity, supporting Sure’s hosting, cloud and security solutions plus fixed and mobile telephony services as well as facilitating the launch of new products into the market’. Sure’s new fibre-optic telecoms network will be available to businesses from spring 2017.
