    With the establishment of the Monet Cable between Miami (USA) and both Fortaleza and Sao Paulo in Brazil in 2017, as well as the laying of the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) between Luanda (Angola) and Fortaleza (Brazil) in 2018, Angola Cables will offer the lowest latency routing between Africa and South America.

    “Beyond the connectivity between Africa and the Americas, the first South Atlantic route to connect these continents will also provide a reliable new route to customers in Asia in the South Hemisphere, as well as a range of connectivity and content services to global organisations,” concluded Nunes.
