TELE Greenland’s DYE 1 radio link station back in operation

9 Jun 2014

TELE-POST Greenland, the holding company that controls the country’s incumbent telco TELE Greenland, has announced that the faulty DYE 1 radio link station, which has affected communications in the towns of Sisimut and Kangerlussuaq, has been repaired. According to a press release, on 5 June 2014 retail and corporate subscribers in the aforementioned locations had no access to mobile or fixed line telephony services, internet, or radio and television services. The fixed telephony network in Kangerlussuaq was back in service on 6 June due to a backup satellite connection via Copenhagen, although due to ‘poor visibility’ no engineering work could be undertaken on the DYE 1. The radio link station was finally repaired on 7 June, after all the faulty equipment was replaced.
