what we do
MT is the Island’s largest telecommunications infrastructure company. We maintain and build a network predominantly made up of local telephone exchanges, cabinets and copper and fibre cables. Approximately 50,000 lines are connected to homes and businesses throughout the Island.
We operate an access network working with different phone and broadband providers to give access to our network and develop innovative new products and services. Our team helps these providers connect their home and business customers to the family, friends, customers & suppliers.
You’ll see our field technicians out and about. They’re working on your behalf to make about over 160,000 visits to homes and businesses each year, maintaining and repairing existing phone and broadband lines – and installing new ones. Right now, we’re developing our fibre optic cable strategy to enable Ultra-Fast Broadband services to the majority of the islands residents and businesses and employing technology neutral solution to increase speeds and enrich the user experience in rural communities.
Fibre can deliver large amounts of data further and faster to support services like private circuits, broadband, HD & UHD media services compared with the copper cables traditionally used for telecommunications services. The future of telecommunications is exciting and we’re working hard to make it happen.
We operate an open network enabling different phone and broadband providers network access so they can offer innovative products and services to their residential and business customers.
working with providers
We offer a range of options so providers can access our network in the way that works best for them and their customers, over both our copper and fibre networks. Our products and services include fibre and copper access services utilising the skills of our service technicians.
We offer a suite of regulated services developed with full industry and government consultation to ensure we offer all providers the same service, using the same systems, on the same terms. Additionally our commercial products are designed to offer services beyond those of the regulated services and create opportunities to make the most of our network assets and reach.
