Bridging the digital divide – the broadband challenge in Canada’s Arctic
QINIQ is an advanced satellite network, delivering broadband internet and mobile services to one of the most remote and challenging regions in the world. QINIQ serves all 25 communities in Nunavut, a territory in Canada’s eastern Arctic with a total population of approximately 36,000 across 2 million square kilometres. There are no roads into Nunavut communities and thus no terrestrial communications backbone infrastructure - all communication with the outside world is done via satellite.
