Cable Route

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.

In 2023 EGS Survey completed their work on the
TAM-1 Submarine Cable System. Their marine
survey activities included the deep-water
survey, shallow water survey and inshore
surveys at Florida, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St.
Croix, and Tortola and for each planned and
potential BU location.

Fugro NV have now commenced the final part
of the TAM-1 route survey, starting in the US and
progressing southwards through Mexico, Belize
and Honduras.
