Satellite Internet in Greenland

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Greenland is the world’s largest island located within the Kingdom of Denmark and is home to stunning arctic scenery. Situated between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic archipelago, three quarters of the entire island is covered by permanent ice sheet. Most residents are Inuit and, of a population of 56,500, a third live in the Greenlandic capital, Nuuk which is also the largest city. Greenland’s economy is dependent upon fishing and 90% of its overall exports come from shrimp and fish. The country also has extensive resource of minerals including iron, uranium, nickel and copper. There is also potential for a hydrocarbon industry but this is still very much in development.

Greenland is well-connected due to fibre optic cable links to Europe. At present, 91.1% of the population have access to the Internet. Mobile phone usage has completely eclipsed fixed line use and coverage extends to nearly all areas but there is still a challenge in terms of connecting some remote areas. Most larger villages have broadband Internet access, but smaller ones in less densely populated areas can struggle to get connectivity.

Satellite Solutions for Greenland

In order to connect the areas of Greenland that still lack Internet access, broadband satellite Internet can provide a very cost-effective and rapid solution. BusinessCom Network’s VSAT services offer a very high level of Quality of Service and will support voice and data networks for homes, enterprise and government users.  Today, Internet access is viewed as a right, not a privilege and is intrinsic to socio-economic development and prosperity. With the vast majority of Greenland already able to access the Internet and other broadband-based services, use of VSAt networks can help Greenland to take the next step to ubiquitous connectivity.

BusinessCom takes a completely customer-centric approach to the design of its customer network and the team hones in on the application/s that the network is specifically to be used for. With this information, we ensure that each customer is afforded the most efficient solution which is also reinforced by our Service Level Agreement (SLA). Applications supported by our VSAT networks include videoconferencing, VoIP and also a range of business applications such as Virtual Private Networks (VPN), EFT, ERP and CITRIX.

The popularity of mobile broadband across Greenland is also very evident, and BusinessCom can also help extend mobile network coverage to areas that are difficult to reach due to their remote location. We have a great deal of experience in designing and implementing our rural mobile network solution which is completely turn-key and fully managed and works independently of local infrastructure. This solution facilitates delivery of low-cost cellular voice, SMS and data and is compatible with all GSM phones. With very fast Return on Investment and deployment possible at a fraction of a traditional installation, the rural mobile network solution provides users with access to e-government, mobile money, online banking, healthcare services and the Internet.


Though Greenland enjoys very good coverage and connectivity, there are still pockets of population that do not have access to a broadband connection. This can be put right through the use of BusinessCom’s VSAT connectivity and rural mobile solution alongside our years of expertise and knowledge in connecting the as yet unconnected.

With a population of over 51 million, South Korea is located in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. The country is home to dramatic, mountainous landscapes, coastal plains, rolling hills and valleys. The country has gone through a great transformation, to become a technological powerhouse and a global provider of electronics and other high technology products and also vessels such as cruise ships.

South Koreans have a very urban-based lifestyle and the country is very technologically advanced with an educated and skilled workforce. The country is the world’s largest spender on R&D and is renowned as an innovator.

As a technological nation, one would expect to see high levels of smartphone adoption and networks that can accommodate this usage. South Korea boasts the highest smartphone ownership in the world and there is excellent 4G LTE coverage across the country. South Korea also has the world’s fastest Internet speed overall, and both mobile and fixed line infrastructure delivers high speeds. The country is also making its move towards 5G and network tests are currently being carried out in areas of Seoul.

South Korea is very well connected, especially in urban areas, where the majority of the population live, but there are still areas of population that are not yet connected to the Internet and this is something that can be addressed using satellite-based solutions. The South Korean government has placed great emphasis on the use of broadband for essential services such as e-government, e-health and e-learning and has used this to good effect. To take these services to those who do not currently have access in more remote locations across the country, satellite provides an ideal, cost-effective solution. BusinessCom is a leading provider of VSAT broadband services for areas that are currently not connected by terrestrial connectivity means. VSAT terminals are easy to deploy even in mountainous and inhospitable areas where it is impossible to put down terrestrial networks. They allow the full range of IP services, enabling communities to enjoy the benefits that broadband brings to urban areas.

For mobile broadband, BusinessCom can provide connectivity for rural mobile networks where Mobile Network Operators can struggle to access, bringing more ubiquitous connectivity in remote regions of South Korea. Delivery of 2G, 3G and 4G services is made easy and the infrastructure is completely independent of local infrastructure.

With the deployment of 5G on the cards in South Korea, satellite will also have an important role to play in terms of providing coverage in areas that are more difficult to reach.

Though South Korea is a very well connected and technologically advanced country, there is still some requirement for the delivery of services in the more hard to reach areas. Satellite-based solutions from BusinessCom provide easy, scalable and cost-effective access to the broadband connectivity that is so important to our modern world. BusinessCom can provide full assistance at every step to tailor a network that suits your requirements whether you are a business, governmental organisation or community.
