About TELE Greenland A/S
From 1925 the Danish State ran TELE with orders coming directly from Copenhagen. As a consequence of the introduction of Home Rule in 1979, all telecommunication services were taken over in 1987, and during 1989 and 1990 TELE's management moved to Nuuk. On 1 January 1994, the Greenland telecommunication service provider became a shareholding company owned by the Greenland Home Rule, and was given the name of TELE Greenland A/S.
By the late 1980s, after nearly 20 years of stable operation, the analog telecommunications network was becoming outdated. In 1990 TELE Greenland started to digitize the satellite systems, introducing digital telephone exchanges and creating a 2000-km radio link. In 1996 Greenland became the second country in the world, second to Iceland, with a fully digitalized telecommunications network servicing even the remotest settlement – a future-proofed system geared to supporting the service needs of a modern, dynamic society. www.tele.gl
