The project will be jointly funded by the federal government and Nunavut, which has already committed $30 million. The cables will stretch from Nuuk, Greenland to Iqaluit through the Davis Strait and will also connect to Nunavut’s Kimmirut. The project will reach up to 3,215 households in the province. Iqaluit and Kimmirut are expected to get the service, with speeds of about one gigabyte per second, by 2023. (The Logic, CBC)
