Cable System


TAM-1 is the first fiber optic cable specifically designed to meet the exploding demand for data in the trans Americas region, revolutionizing connectivity solutions through state-of-the-art products and services. The initial system rollout covers more than 7,000 km and will link Florida with Central America and the wider Caribbean. This is the first stage of a broader digital infrastructure project which will be carried out over the next five years creating a low latency, high reliability, scalable and flexible network covering the entire Caribbean Basin, with extensions to pacific South America.
