Subsea connectivity restored to northern Greenland

Following repairs to a subsea cable linking Greenland and Canada, connectivity has been restored to customers north of the town of Sisimiut.

The population of South Greenland will have to wait for another 15-20 days before the southern branch of the damaged subsea cable is repaired.


Greenland is an autonomous territory of Denmark with a population of about 56,000, most of whom live along fjords in the southwest.

TELE-POST is the service provider for Greenland.

The subsea cable to Canada was breached in late December 2018. The weather has been a factor in scheduling the repair ship. Since then, an old microwave radio network has been providing service via a second subsea cable to Iceland.
