TI Sparkle launches PoP in Tanzania

19 June 2014 |


TI Sparkle has launched a new PoP in Tanzania.

The move will reinforce the company’s presence in south and east Africa, as it aims to become a leading IP gateway to the region.

The PoP will be established in Dar es Salaam in partnership with Tanzania Telecommunication Company (TTCL), which will deliver IP services in the region.

TI Sparkle and TTCL will offer IP connectivity solutions to telecoms operators, ISPs and service providers that are connected to Dar es Salaam through major international submarine and terrestrial cable systems.

“The new partnership with TTCL and Sparkle’s recent developments in west Africa show how fast we are growing in Africa, a continent where we intend to continue to invest in terms of resources and in terms of commercial effort,” said Elisabetta Ripa, CEO at TI Sparkle.

In June, TI Sparkle also announced a partnership with Dolphin Telecom for the extension of its global IP backbone in west Africa.
