Sparkle announces the activation of spectrum capacity on the Monet submarine cable system connecting Brazil to the United States.

Monet is a new generation cable spanning 10,556 km and connecting Boca Raton, Florida, to both Fortaleza and Sao Paulo in Brazil. Having Monet as part of its assets in the Atlantic, Sparkle further enhances its Tier-1 Seabone global IP transit service and its capacity solutions, catering to the huge data demand driven by new technologies, media platforms and cloud-based services that require omnipresent internet connectivity.

With this addition, Sparkle increases the overall redundancy of its regional backbone by providing five diversified routes between North and South America, thanks to its extensive submarine infrastructure that includes three undersea digital highways: Monet and Seabras-1 in the Atlantic and Curie in the Pacific.

Sparkle continues the expansion of its American fiber optic network, which now counts 56 points-of-presence (PoPs) including its open landing and connectivity hub in Panama.
