Sparkle to invest on deployment of BlueMed submarine cable

Monday 15 April 2019 | 07:53 CET | News
Telecom Italia's international services arm Sparkle announced a long-term investment for the deployment of BlueMed, a submarine multi-fibre cable linking Palermo with Genoa. Planned to be operational by 2020, the new cable will cross the Tyrrhenian Sea connecting Sparkle's Sicily Hub open data centre in Palermo, which serves eighteen international cables, with Genoa's new open landing station, directly connected to Milan's rich digital ecosystem. BlueMed will also include multiple branches within the Tyrrhenian Sea and is set to support further extensions southbound of Sicily.
