Sure wins Managed WAN government contract

Will provide service to 120 locations in the east

Sure will become the sole provider for the Managed Wide Area Network for all government sites in the east of the Island.

It's been awarded the contract following a tender process – a contract win which follows the company being appointed as sole provider for government internet services. 

Sure will provide Managed WAN services to around 120 locations which include healthcare premises, emergency services and schools. 

Chief executive Mike Phillips said: "Our WAN solution, designed by our local professional services team, will deliver new levels of scalability and agility to the government while ensuring stability, resilience and increasing speed.

"This new additional state-of-the-art service and award builds on our internet tender success last month resulting in Sure now being the Isle of Man Government's key supplier of connectivity services encompassing mobile, internet and WAN.

"We've invested millions of pounds in the Island's telecoms infrastructure so we're very pleased that the government has recognised the quality of our team and the strength of our network."
