Sure connects Isle of Man Government with internet contract win

Following a competitive tender process Sure has won a significant contract to provide internet services to the Isle of Man Government.

The tender process determined that Sure’s continued investment in people, technology and infrastructure on the island makes it the best-positioned operator to provide internet services.

The island-specialist telecoms provider will be the new sole provider of a dedicated, fully scalable, resilient, and high-capacity internet service, which will support the needs of all government departments and users.

Sure already provides mobile services to the government and Mike Phillips, Sure’s chief executive in the Isle of Man, said that the operator was excited to broaden the relationship into new service areas.

“Our team worked incredibly hard throughout the tender process to design a proposition that not only meets the government’s requirements but exceeds them.” said Mr Phillips.

“The new Sure service significantly increases internet capacity enabling government to harness the full potential of new digital technologies and services and supports the Isle of Man Government’s digital strategy.”

The internet provided to the Isle of Man Government will have a dedicated management team that will monitor and proactively manage the connectivity to ensure an efficient, reliable and fast service.
