Prepaid Data SIM Card Wiki
2000px-Flag of Greenland


There is only one public mobile operator in Greenland:

  • Tusass (formely: TELE Greenland and Tele-Post)

The state-owned TELE Greenland A/S Group was the main telecommunication and postal provider in Greenland and its headquarters are in Nuuk. It also operated the only mobile network in the country. TELE Greenland A/S was rebranded as Tusass in 2021 and all phone and postal services are under the Tusass label now. Tusass is Greenlandic slang for "talk to you later".

2G and 3G is on 900 MHz, 4G has started 2013 in Nuuk on 800 MHz (band 20) and is in these towns in 2015: Nuuk, Qaqortoq, Ilulissat, Sisimiut, Maniitsoq, Aasiaat and airport Kangerlussusuaq. Every settlement with more than 70 inhabitants has at least 2G coverage, but most areas of the country are uninhabited. Detailed coverage maps you can find here. At the end of 2018 their 4G/LTE coverage has risen to 92% of the population.

No roaming
Despite being a constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark, in 1985 Greenland left the EU, where from 2017 new common international roaming rules have been enforced. So roaming rates on European SIM cards are not capped or regulated in Greenland and can be much higher than in the rest of Europe.

Calls from or to Denmark are seen as international calls. Better buy a local SIM card instead.

Data costs on mobile internet remain pretty high for visitors in Greenland because of this monopoly. That's why you should check for more options international roaming SIM cards and if you have an eSIM-enabled device data on eSIM.
