Subsea cables with Greece

Egypt and Greece will lay a new subsea data cable across the Mediterranean under an agreement signed by Telecom Egypt and Greek telecoms company Grid Telecom, TE said in a press release. The cable is set to up data traffic between Europe, Asia, and Africa, the release read, “creating a new reliable telecommunications corridor interconnecting the three continents.”

TE loves subsea cables: The state-owned telecoms firm is upping its 14 Mediterranean and Red Sea subsea cable systems to 18 by 2025.
