Jersey steps up offshore internet battle

Jersey is to play host to a new internet Data Centre which will act as one of the largest internet exchanges of its kind in the world, island representatives have claimed.

The development, backed by the Itex Group and the Jersey Electricity Company, will provide secure, non-stop computering and communications to thousands of e-commerce companies whose servers are expected to be hosted by the centre.

The facility is connected directly to a new fibre optic telecommunications link to mainland Europe, which is being built alongside the Channel Island’s electricity grid.

Chris Evans, a director of Itex, said: ‘This alliance lays the foundation on which Jersey can become the offshore e-business hub for Europe in the same way Bermuda is positioned for North America.’
