Capacity - - Europe -

Telecom Italia’s Sparkle and the Libyan In­ter­na­tional Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­pany (LITC) have up­graded the 570km bi­lat­eral ca­ble con­nect­ing Libya to Europe via Si­cily to 100Gbps.

The en­hance­ment of the ca­ble sys­tem, which came about as a re­sult of in­creas­ing de­mand of ad­vanced ser­vices be­tween Libya and Europe, will sup­port lo­cal in­ter­net ser­vice providers (ISPS) in pro­vid­ing their eye­balls and the cor­po­rate seg­ment with a bet­ter in­ter­net ex­pe­ri­ence as well as a range of more ad­vanced con­nec­tiv­ity ser­vices.

“This up­grade is the re­sult of a long­stand­ing and con­sol­i­dated part­ner­ship be­tween Sparkle and LITC. It also proves once again the vi­tal role of Si­cily as the nat­u­ral and most ef­fi­cient Euro­pean hub for the Mediter­ranean, Africa and the Mid­dle East,” says Alessan­dro Talotta, chair­man and CEO at Sparkle.

Mohmoud Alau­jali, chair­man of LITC, added: “LITC trusts that the up­grade of sub­ma­rine sys­tem will play a ma­jor role to en­hance the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion ser­vices in Libya and de­liver ef­fi­cient band­width be­tween Libya and Europe. The re­cently grow­ing de­mand for in­creased data in Libya re­quires high speed ac­cess.”
