In September 2022, Skybrokers embarked on an incredible journey, securing a groundbreaking contract with Tusass (formerly TELE Greenland). 🌏 Our mission: to supply them with a used Andrew 7.6m Ku-band Earth Station Antenna, that was successfully assembled, aligned, and commissioned in July and August of 2023. 🌟📡
This newly installed antenna is set to play a pivotal role in Tusass’ satellite network, providing crucial support to the villages and settlements around Greenland. 🏘️🌐 With faster and more cost-effective internetservices, it's a monumental leap forward in connectivity for these communities.
In July and August 2023, Skybrokers successfully converted two ASC Signal 4.9m Earth Station Antennas, operated by Tusass (formerly Tele Post Greenland), from C-band to Ku-band to enable communication with the HispaSat Amazonas Nexus satellite. The antennas are operating from remote and hard-to-reach communities in Tasiilaq and Ittoqqortoormiit, located on the East-coast of Greenland. Following rigorous testing, the antennas were put back into operation, providing more affordable internet connections for local homes.
Traveling to these remote villages proved to be a complex journey making 14 stops across Iceland and Greenland involving airplanes, helicopters and multiple transfers and two return flights to Iceland. An extraordinary trip with breathtaking views of isolated mountain regions, remote settlements, icebergs and world’s largest fjord system. ... See MoreSee Less
