100GB transmission technology introduced in Malta

Sparkle, the international services arm of TIM Group, and Malta’s GO plc, have upgraded the Italy-Malta bilateral cable and introduced 100GB transmission technology.

The upgrade is in response to the growing demand for hosting and online gaming servers in Malta, one of the main drivers of the increase in IP and data business between GO and Sparkle.

The introduction of the state-of-the-art 100GB technology will enhance the performance of GO’s IP proposition through highly sophisticated and reliable connectivity solutions.

GO said this morning that the upgrade of the Italy-Malta bilateral cable reinforced the partnership between Sparkle and GO as it provided a differentiated and highly reliable international route for Malta’s international traffic.

The project is also part of GO’s recently announced €100 million investment in Malta’s communications infrastructure, designed to prepare the country for the future.

The partnership between GO and Sparkle will continue to develop, to meet the needs of customers operating across the Mediterranean.
