Telecom Italia Sparkle: new partnership with Tunisie Telecom for Mediterranean Region corporate telecommunications service provision

As a result of this partnership, TI Sparkle and Tunisie Telecom will combine their voice and data services know-how and competencies to play a leading role in the Mediterranean basin market.
Tunisie Telecom and Telecom Italia Sparkle’s multinational clients will benefit from a wide range of high standard services including e-mail, video communication and sensitive data transfer between head and regional offices.

“This agreement is another step towards becoming a leading provider of services to multinational clients around the world, over our proprietary network and through ad hoc alliances. We are proud that Tunisie Telecom has chosen us as their primary provider of international telecommunications services; it is an acknowledgement of our growing commitment to the Mediterranean,” says Stefano Mazzitelli, CEO at Telecom Italia Sparkle.

“We are very pleased to be working alongside Telecom Italia Sparkle in our efforts to cater to the exacting requirements of multinational clients that have offices in Tunisia.
