Thursday 14 March 2019 | 12:40 CET | News
Tele-Post Greenland said the break to the submarine cable south of Sisimiut has been repaired, meaning that customers in Sisimiut and Kangerlussuaq were expected to regain broadband access on 13 March. During repairs in the north, the engineers were surprised to find there was no connection through the cable from Sisimiut to Aasiaat. Shortly after, they found another breach 70 km north for Sisimiut.
