The European Investment Bank is offering 20 million euros for the Black Sea internet cable project, which will connect the EU countries to Georgia and from there to Azerbaijan. At the same time, the European Union wants to connect Europe and Asia by building a new internet cable to eliminate internet dependency in the region.
An internet cable will be laid under the Caspian Sea to improve communications. The project is called the Digital Silk Road. Vodafone is currently investigating possible ways of laying underwater internet cables under the Black Sea.
