First subsea cable linking Africa and South America nears completion
WACS and MainOne then link ZA to Angola to SACSHow much do you think we will get from South Africa to Brazil?
This is actually a big deal, as ZA will be able to get to USA via a shorter link - i.e. lower latency.<SNIP>
The introduction of SACS opens new routing
Africa will be able to reach the USA without linking through Europe
Does anyone know what the latency is like between SA and Angola?
And then Brazil to Miami?
The article mentions 100ms from SA to Miami, but that seems very optimistic?
However, anything less than around 130ms will be fantastic.
The Angolan end will provide onward connectivity by the SAT-3/WASC cable.
No seeing as it's currently routed via france.
sao paulo to miami is 108ms
I call BS, straight line distance would be 140ms, this route is longer than a straight line
