Sure subscriber rise in first quarter of the year

SURE has continued to increase fixed line and broadband subscribers across the three Crown Dependencies, according to quarterly results from parent company Batelco.


Fixed line subscriptions rose 4% and broadband subscribers went up 8% in the first quarter of 2017. Mobile customers remained steady.

Batelco Group CEO Ihab Hinnawi highlighted Sure’s performance in the company’s latest report.

‘As the quarterly results show, the Batelco Group operates in some extremely competitive and challenging markets, so it’s particularly pleasing to know that Sure is contributing strongly to the group’s overall results,’ said Ian Kelly, Sure’s acting CEO.

‘The fact that we continue to add significant numbers of both broadband and fixed line subscribers shows how important it was to open up the island markets to competition.'

Are they additional lines, or just ones poached from JT or Isle of Man telecom? If they're just poached then his comment is null and void.


I personally think its largely due to them changing their tariffs for broadband. I used to pay £24.99 per month and received up to 20mb download speeds. with the new setup i pay £27.99 and get up to 40mb download & 5mb upload speeds (I average at about 38mb down & 4.7 up).

for £35.00 per month you can have up to 60mb.

the guy came out installed all the new hardware (at no charge to me) and it was up and running in no time.

I have to say in this instance i cannot fault their service plus the speeds i now get are actually pretty good.
