Telecommunication in Greenland

Compared to the European Union, Greenland has a slight downturn in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +299, there were a total of 68,789 connections in 2020. Among them were 61,656 mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 1.1 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.

In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, Greenland is back. Around 69% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 26% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).

With about 15,645 webhosts, Greenland is below the world's average by population. At the end of 2020, 232 million of these, or about 1 percent, were secured with SSL or comparable encryption.
