Telxius opens Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico cable route

Global connectivity provider Telxius says it is opening its latest submarine cable route with the extension of SAm-1 between Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

The route is in service from this month and serves as a vital link between the Caribbean and the US, as well as wider Latin America via the Brusa, PCCS, and SAm-1 cables.

This extension expands Telxius’ network capabilities and further bridges the gap between the Caribbean and the Americas with ultra-high-capacity connectivity. Telxius says it will be the first public cable covering this route with such high capacity. Telxius notes that this route demonstrates its strong focus on boosting communications in Latin America.

By leveraging this advanced infrastructure, it adds, enterprises in the Dominican Republic will experience improved connectivity, facilitating smoother communication, commerce and collaboration, both regionally and globally. 

“Our developments across the region are driven by growing customer demand and new opportunities to support local and global enterprises and we are continually evolving our capabilities to better serve the needs of our customers in this fast-growing market, says Mario Martín, CEO at Telxius.

The Telxius network includes eight next-generation fibre optic submarine cables and terrestrial backhauls together spanning more than 100,000 kilometres. Telxius provides a wide range of capacity, colocation and security services, as well as direct internet connectivity through its Tier-1 IP network, providing connectivity around the world.
