The eastern coast of South America has another connectivity option in place as of today. Telxius says that the new Tannat submarine cable it has been working on with Google is officially open for business.
Tannat stretches between Santos, Brazil and Las Toninsas in Argentina, providing connectivity between the markets of São Paolo and Buenos Aires. That provides a third leg to Telxius's infrastructure along the east coast of the Americas. The Junior cable connects Santos up to Rio de Janeiro, and the Brusa cable system hooks up Rio with Virginia Beach and interconnects with the Marea and Dunante cable systems across the Atlantic to Europe.
Next up for Telxius' subsea plans is the Mistral cable project with Claro currently being built by Subcom. That one snakes along the western coast of South America, which will start on the coast of Chile and connect up to the coast of Guatemala with multiple stops along the way. In March that cable came ashore in Peru.
