Malbec cable to double Argentina's international connectivity

Friday 12 November 2021 | 11:46 CET | News
Argentina's communications regulator Enacom has announced the entry into force of the Malbec cable system connecting Las Toninas in the Buenos Aires province with Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo in Brazil. A joint venture between undersea cable operator GlobeNet and Meta, the cable will serve to double the existing installed capacity connecting Argentina with the world, said Enacom. It joins the Tannat (Brazil-Uruguay-Argentina) inaugurated by Google and Alcatel at the end of 2020, and several other cables connected to landing stations in Las Toninas.
