Local telecoms company Sure has proudly supported the TT since 2007 and are delighted to once again be the Official Telecommunications partner of the TT Races
Sure, the island’s best mobile network†, provides WiFi access in the temporary official grandstands around the course, and at the Grandstand and around the Paddock, enabling fans to use Twitter and other social media to keep up to date, and to share those fabulous TT photos and videos. We provide some of the equipment for race officials (including the TT Marshals) that helps them to carry out their vital work. With great speeds and coverage around the island, we have you covered… wherever you are enjoying the TT!
On arrival, visitors to the island should select the Sure network in their mobile network settings to take advantage of cost effective call plans; alternatively, you can pick up a Sure local SIM card from our retail stores in Strand Street Douglas, Parliament Street Ramsey (in the north of the island), Orchard Walk Port Erin (in the south) or from the Sure retail unit right in the heart of the TT Grandstand. You can buy a simple “phone in a box” for calls and texts or a basic “smartphone in a box”, each already pre-loaded with a SIM and credit, to use while you are on the island.
We also sell MiFi units (to set up your own, personal WiFi hotspot – great if you’re camping!), and a range of accessories is available in store. We will be stocking the pre-tuned AM radios for keeping up with the commentary during the races, so you’ll always be in touch with what is happening out on the course. This year, we are also stocking amongst other things rechargeable “power packs” so that your phone need never run out of juice while you are out and about enjoying the atmosphere, and wireless headphones and speakers.
Our friendly staff are always happy to help you with any questions you may have...just pop in for a chat, we’d love to see you!
