JT is technology partner for this year's NatWest Island Games


As preparations for the 16th NatWest Island Games continue, JT has confirmed its role as official technology partner.

JT has already been working closely with the Games organisers to ensure that the infrastructure is in place to deliver the very latest technology to provide super-fast, seamless communications across all sports venues around the Island, and at the main Games Village at Howard Davis Park.

The vision is to make the 2015 NatWest Island Games the most connected in its 30-year history, and the technology solutions JT is providing will support organisers and media partners to enable a superior experience of the Games for all. Delivering results in real-time around the world, and encouraging live interaction via digital channels, on and offsite, are just some of the planned benefits.

Extra sponsorship from JT means that each of the participants will receive a free JT SIM card on arrival in Jersey to help make sure they can stay in touch with friends and family at home.

Tim Ringsdore, Chief Relationship Officer at JT, said: “We are very proud to partner with the NatWest Island Games to provide the all-important behind-the-scenes infrastructure that will power communications for the 16th biennial event. We believe that in combining our new 4G and superfast fibre‐optic networks together, will mean this can be the most technically advanced NatWest Island Games to date and ensure visitors can enjoy the same benefits that seamless connectivity already offers Islanders.

He added: “Our partnerships with global market-leaders ensure that we can deliver the very latest technology for the Channel Islands and the community we serve. We are very pleased to have been chosen to extend this capability to ensure an event of this scale is powered by excellent connectivity. It is our pleasure to support the NatWest Island Games and provide the technology to help enhance every aspect of this important event. We very much look forward to welcoming the participants and visitors in June, and wish the organisers all the very best in the final preparations.”

JT will provide The NatWest Island Games with:

  • Wi-Fi access at the Games Village in Howard Davis Park
  • Around 4,000 FREE SIM cards for visting athletes
  • Mobile Broadband services powered by JT’s 3G and 4G networks & fibre optic broadband.
