New telecom network on the way

Manx telecom says a new £25 million network combining landlines, mobile phones and broadband will be one of the largest technology investments the Isle of Man has ever seen.

The Next Generation Network, or NGN, will be ready to go in late 2008 and will radically change the way the Island’s telcoms system works.

By melding all its services together, Manx Telecom says it hopes to make efficiency savings as well as offer much more to its customers.

NGN will mark a world first for MT, and Managing Director Chris Hall has some more good news – it won’t mean digging up more roads! (audio file attached):
