Sparkle launches GreenMed, the submarine cable in the Adriatic Sea that will connect Italy with the Balkans and Central and Eastern Mediterranean countries

Sparkle is launching a project to build GreenMed, a new submarine cable system that will cross the Adriatic Sea connecting Italy to Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Türkiye, and then extend further into the Mediterranean.

GreenMed will create an innovative fibre-optic infrastructure corridor to connect Central Europe, the Balkans and the Central and Eastern Mediterranean countries. From the Italian Adriatic coast, the system will connect overland to the digital hub in Milan and from there to other major European Internet and cloud nodes.

The project is also intended to support the strong development of the Balkan digital market by offering a secure and diversified route in addition to the already existing land-based backbones.

Italy confirms itself as the primary hub of the enlarged Mediterranean, connecting with the GreenMed system also the island of Crete in Greece, which in recent years has become an important digital gateway for the region and the landing point of Sparkle’s BlueMed cable connecting Italy with France, Greece and various countries bordering the Mediterranean up to Aqaba in Jordan.
