Guernsey mobile plans

Now that Sure and Wave/JT are operating in both islands competition is heating up unless you want 3G in Guernsey because the government awarded the licence to somebody who doesn’t operate whilst refusing a licence to the biggest operator. Way to go.

Basic plans

Wave/JT should be commended for offering the same plan and rates across the islands.

Sure have some balancing to do between island and need to offer a lightweight plan below their basic £20 a month rental in Guernsey. They do offer cheaper rental pricing when taking out an 18 month contract however.

Both operators have a make-your-own-plan scheme available.

    Changed to Wave a while ago and the coverage and customer experience is far better than the abymissal treatment from C&W. Also, my top-up cards seem to last much longer. The feebel responses from C&W have made me laugh. Years of neglect is hard to recoever from.
