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 77,000.00 connections in 2016. Among them were 61,000.00 million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 1.1 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.
