GlobeNet and Facebook Bring New Submarine Cable to Argentina

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. and MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GlobeNet, the leading, fastest growing wholesale provider of telecom infrastructure in the Americas, and Facebook, announce today that they have begun construction of the new submarine cable system GlobeNet announced in May. GlobeNet and Facebook will co-own the system and it will be operated by GlobeNet.

Named 'Malbec' after the renowned Argentinian wine, the new 2,500 km submarine cable will link the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and will have a branching unit to reach Porto Alegre, Brazil. By connecting Argentina to GlobeNet's network in Brazil, the new infrastructure will provide seamless connectivity between the Southern Cone of South America and the United States. When completed, it will be the first new submarine cable route to reach the Argentinian coast since 2001.

"We are excited and proud to work with Facebook," says Eduardo Falzoni, CEO of GlobeNet. "Argentina deserves state-of-the-art infrastructure to satisfy the pressing demands of the years ahead. This project is a testament to our capabilities, expertise and commitment to the region where we have been operating for 15 years."

Taking advantage of the latest developments in fiber optics, the 'Malbec' cable system will feature six fiber pairs, delivering double the current international capacity to Argentina and enabling access to social media content, streaming and cloud services at high speed.
