Sparkle to enhance its American backbone with direct Chile to US connectivity
Rome, 6 May 2020
Sparkle, the first international service provider in Italy and among the top ten global operators, announces the enhancement of its American backbone boosting its Pacific routes with a new fiber pair on Curie submarine cable system connecting Chile to US.
The Google-owned subsea cable Curie is the first direct new generation US-Chile cable connecting Los Angeles to Valparaiso.
Sparkle’s new fiber pair on Curie will be fully integrated with Sparkle’s global backbone, increasing redundancy and offering a fourth diversified route to directly connect South and North America, complementing its 2017 addition of the Seabras-1 cable in the Atlantic.
Thanks to these newest highways, Curie in the Pacific and Seabras-1 in the Atlantic, Sparkle offers the best performance in terms of latency and robustness through its pillar connectivity service City2City and its global Tier-1 IP transit service Seabone.
With this latest investment Sparkle is even more able to cater to the huge data demand driven by new technologies, media platforms and cloud-based services, requiring omnipresent internet connectivity.
Sparkle’s expansion plans focused on the Pacific South American coast with a direct US-Chile route, as well as easy onward connectivity to the rest of the world, position Sparkle as the best-in-class choice for OTTs, ISPs, Enterprises, Content/Application Providers and Asian players.
