Not as many residents as your post indicates.
"Just a few of the 90,000 residents of Jersey are enjoying some of the world's fastest fixed and mobile broadband speeds right now. "
"Jersey Telecom, the local landline provider, has put 1Gb/s fibre optic connections into a new marina development - that's ten times the fastest speeds available in the UK."
But Virgin is trialling 1.5Gb/s in London.

These modern youngsters and their demands for bandwidth! Pah!
I used to be responsible for a financial markets trading system which had about receiving PC's spread across Europe located on bank trading floors. It did millions of dollars trade every working day.
The satellite bandwidth used to support the system was a 4800 baud broadcast feed.
We used to use the same link to download software updates to the remote PC's.

I probably worked on an earlier system before PCs were available which used PDP8M's
