GlobeNet, a provider of submarine capacity and a subsidiary of Brazil’s Oi, has announced plans for an express route from its future landing on Colombia’s Atlantic coast to Miami. UNE EPM Telecomunicaciones, the largest Internet provider in Colombia where it also acts as a full-service telecom operator, has signed a long-term agreement with GlobeNet to become the anchor tenant on the new subsea route.
The new route will be a direct extension from GlobeNet’s existing subsea cable system connecting the USA, Venezuela, Brazil, and Bermuda. The dual ring-protected submarine cable system covers a distance of more than 22,000 km. The new link will create the lowest latency route from Colombia to Brazil, GlobeNet asserts.
