Description

Graeme Marett is a Chartered Engineer with over 50 years of experience in telecommunications having begun his career with the States of Jersey Telephone Department through R&D posts with international companies such as Phillips and AT&T and finally working with the local telecommunications regulator in Jersey. Have you ever wondered how the Channel Islands came to be connected to the rest of the world through the telephone, television and internet? Well, this book discusses the engineering and political decisions that brought international communications and broadcasting to the islands, following the sometimes intriguing and convoluted paths taken to get where we are today. It traces over 150 years of technical and political developments that enabled the people of the islands to communicate with others elsewhere.
