Global Crossing Upgrades Atlantic Subsea Net

Last year, Global Crossing inaugurated a fiber optic cable landing on Costa Rica's Pacific Coast.

Thursday, January 22, 2009

The new cable connection is an extension of the Pan American Crossing (PAC®), which connects the United States' west coast, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela and the Virgin Islands, in addition to the east coast of the United States, South America, Europe and Asia, via Global Crossing's other underwater cable systems.

During the first half of 2009, Global Crossing will be adding 600 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of transport capacity to the AC-1 Northern and Southern routes. Global Crossing's Atlantic Crossing -1 South route connects Brookhaven, New York, to the United Kingdom. Atlantic Crossing -1 North connects Brookhaven, New York, to Germany and the Netherlands.
