The project should be completed before the winter season of 2008.
The Greenland Connect network will consist of two main sections (or trunk cables): the first one will span 2,500 kilometers from Nuuk in Greenland to Milton in Newfoundland and the second will link Nuuk and Qaqortoq to Landeyarsandur in Iceland over 2,100 kilometers. Each of the trunk cables will be equipped with branching units allowing for future connections north of Nuuk and also for a direct connection from Newfoundland to Iceland. Greenland Connect will offer an ultimate capacity of up to 96 x 10Gbit/s.
The network will enable businesses and consumers to benefit from services such as broadband Internet and video conferencing. Tele Greenland will also be able to further enhance its end-to-end offering for voice and data network hubs, call centers and advanced multimedia applications for maritime safety and emergency communications.
