Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey.

The Communications Commission is gathering information on how Isle of Man consumers use their broadband subscriptions, whether this is a fixed or mobile broadband subscription, so that we can better understand what is important to you.

  • Fixed broadband is where your router is connected to your internal wiring in your home and you need a landline connection (unless you are with Bluewave).
  • Mobile broadband is offered by Manx Telecom, Sure and other UK providers and are the 3G or 4G routers, or the SIM cards which allow data only access.
