Jersey telecom company phone system being shut down

The system that has run landline phone services in Jersey since 1986 is being switched off.

The new £20m digital Next Generation Network will take over from government owned telecom company JT's System X.

System X is a digital phone system that has been running landline services for the past 26 years.

The new system has been running alongside System X for a few years and Jersey Telecom does not expect problems when the old system is switched off.

Robin Dodkins, who worked for JT for 47 years, will help pull the plug.
