In recent weeks, SAIL Cable, funded and built by China, announced that it has completed the construction of the cable, the first cable to connect Brazil to Africa (Cameroon), but it is not yet operational.

The SACS cable will allow South America to more directly cover the growing African Internet economy and provide an alternative path to Europe after cross-connecting with other submarine cables on the west coast of Africa. In the end, SACS cables across the African continent will enable direct links between South America and Asia, bypassing Europe and the United States. filling compounf for optical fiber loose tube
In addition, the SACS cable will also be connected to the Google MONET cable in Fortaleza, Brazil, enabling the African Internet to reach the United States more directly without first passing through Europe.
