Manx Telecom enhances mobile broadband coverage
The Isle of Man's main telecoms provider, Manx Telecom, has invested £1 million in its mobile broadband network to enhance coverage across the island.

Manx Telecom customers using the Pay As You Go service will also be given access to the internet via 3G for the first time, as the feature has previously only been available to monthly subscribers.

Mike Readshaw, programme manager for the company's Next Generation Network, said customers can look forward to considerably faster speeds when uploading photos and videos, as well as mobile broadband browsing.

"In addition to faster speeds, to improve our 3G network coverage, we have also installed 13 new radio base stations across the island as part of this improvement project," he went on to say.

The company recently announced that it is introducing a new range of internet routers, which allow home broadband customers to prevent their children from seeing inappropriate content.
