- Telecommunications in Greenland
Greenland has, by law, only one service provider for telecommunications and internet, TELE Greenland, which is fully owned by the Greenlandic Home Rule government. TELE Greenland provides switched telephone and data, land mobile communications, VHF and MF shore-to-ship communication, and television and radio broadcasting. This type of monopoly is not uncommon in Greenland.
There are adequate domestic and international service, provided by cables and microwave radio relay. The system was totally digitized in 1995. As of 2008, Greenland had 23,500 telephone main lines in use. From 16,747 cellular phones in 2001, Greenland increased its usage to 66,400 mobile cellular telephones in 2007.
Greenland has domestic microwave radio relay. International communication is provided by two coaxial submarine cables in the Atlantic Ocean and three satellite earth stations. TELE Greenland first used satellite communication in 1978 and currently utilizes Intelsat, Eutelsat, and GE Americom.
