The telecommunications market in Latin America and the demand for faster, more reliable connections has presented opportunities for telecom companies. According to TeleGeography, by 2002, the completion of proposed submarine cable links will dramatically increase capacity. The Phillips Group also cites that the growing demand in Latin America for bandwidth capacity is giving rise to companies that can provide multi-gigabit submarine cable systems.

New World Network's ARCOS cable offers 15 Gbps of fully redundant capacity with a multi-upgradeable design capacity of 960 Gbps and is designed to incorporate future technologies. This design allows New World Network to always take advantage of the latest terminal technology at a given point in time and continuously compete as a low cost provider.

New World Network's undersea fiber-optic ring, ARCOS (Americas Region Caribbean Ring System), is connecting the U.S. market with 14 additional jurisdictions throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. The entire network will link Miami to the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Curacao, Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize and Mexico. The network is fully financed, and the entire 8,600km ring is expected to be complete by the end of third quarter 2001.
