Sparkle the international services arm of Telecom Italia Group and among top 10 global operators, announces that Seabone, its worldwide Tier-1 IP Transit Service and Backbone marks its 20th anniversary since the beginning of its operations in 1996.

In these twenty years, Seabone's incredible success worldwide has been built on ensuring continuous growth in coverage and capillarity in order to always provide top quality and reliability, and through a highly skilled dedicated team. Mostly, its success has been driven by the numerous customers that in these twenty years have contributed to Seabone's growth and top positioning in the global ranking.

To celebrate this anniversary Sparkle has launched the "Seabone's Happy 20th Birthday" campaign, a can't-be-missed promotion directed to all ISPs currently not Seabone's customers.

To take advantage of this unbeatable offer, new customers must sign the contract not later than January 10th, 2017.

Seabone today ranks #1 in Latin America and in the Middle East, and #7 globally.

TI Sparkle announced the expansion of its Global IP Backbone with a new IP POP in Stockholm, Sweden.

Located at Telecity in Bromma, the first independent carrier neutral facility in the Swedish market, the new POP will address the increasing demand of IP Transit service coming from the Nordic countries, an area which is in fact experiencing double digit growth in IP traffic.

With this new POP, TI Sparkle intends to capture the demand from major ISPs, OTTs and global Content Players that have already established their presence in the area. In addition, TI Sparkle will provide IP connectivity to Russian players who consider Stockholm as one of their main European hubs.

The Stockholm POP will increase TI Sparkle's Global IP Backbone capillarity in Northern Europe and will further improve the performance of TI Sparkle's Global IP Transit Service Seabone offered to OTTs, content and service providers in the region and at the same time will provide eyeballs with an overall higher internet experience.

Seabone is TI Sparkle Tier1 Global IP Transit backbone that ranks among leading IP networks in Europe. While consolidating its global role, Seabone is strengthening its regional positioning globally and especially in Africa and Asia where it has reached leading positions.
