The subsea cable company has chosen Jacksonville Network Access Point (JaxNAP) to host the newest submarine cable in the USA. This addition to the subsea cable system will allow customers to connect with low latency, high availability, and a direct route between Brazil and the Southern United States. Seaborn will provide its high-scale Ethernet and IP Services which directly connects to the backbone of their internet. This integration into Seabras-1 will also provide full protection between the two countries.

The Senior Partner of the JAX NAP, Luke Leonaitis, stated, “This connectivity is a game-changer for anyone in the southeast United States seeking an alternative to the NAP in Miami or the risk of terrestrial transport to connect going north to other subsea cable alternatives. We expect the latency advantage to further cement Seaborn and Jacksonville as the go-to place for data flowing to Brazil and other markets in South America.

JaxNAP is the largest carrier hotel since 2009 in North Florida and offers terrestria l connections to Georgia, Texas, and Northern Florida. The company also connects overseas to the Caribbean, Central and South America, and much more.
