Newfoundland links with Greenland


September 6, 2008
By Alyssa Dalton

TELE-Greenland has begun the process of connecting Greenland to Newfoundland & Labrador via 4600 kilometres of sub-sea fiber optic cable. The Rock was selected by TELE-Greenland as the location to come ashore because of the strength of its fiber link with mainland Canada—a link that was facilitated by the provincial government’s $15-million investment in its second trans-gulf fiber optic network.

The
new cable network will land in Milton, Trinity Bay, where
TELE-Greenland is also building a communications facility. Called
Greenland Connect, the initiative is part of a $140-million strategy to
improve Internet and telephone services in Greenland, and satisfy its
growing bandwidth requirements.
