Tele Greenland to start sea cable extension in summer 2017

Friday 15 April 2016 | 13:48 CET | News
Tele-Post Greenland said its board has resolved to go ahead with starting the establishment of a sea cable to improve telecoms infrastructure in the northern part of Greenland. The aim is to extend the cable from Nuuk to Aasiaat via Maniitsoq and Sisimiut. It is not possible to run the cable any further north than that because of the large quantities of ice and difficult sea bed.
