DC BLOX has inaugurated its Cable Landing Station [CLS] in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, capable of hosting up to five subsea cables including the Nuvem cable, which will also connect to Portugal and Bermuda.

A spokesperson said, “DC BLOX, a provider of multi-tenant data centers, dark fiber, and connectivity solutions that deliver essential infrastructure to power today’s digital businesses, today announced the opening of its Cable Landing Station [CLS] in Myrtle Beach, S.C. With design capacity at full build-out of 125,000 sq. ft. and 19 MW of power, the new CLS can host up to five subsea cables and colocation space for network and cable operators, communications providers, local enterprises, and partners.

“Subsea cables, powering global communications, converge at cable landing stations like the one unveiled in Myrtle Beach, marking a transformative moment for the region. DC BLOX’s new CLS positions Myrtle Beach as a vital connectivity hub globally, providing geographic diversity and resilience from existing subsea fiber routes. DC BLOX is also building a dark fiber route from their Myrtle Beach Cable Landing Station to Atlanta’s communications hub, the first direct east-to-west route enabling high-capacity direct access to hundreds of communications providers and to a rapidly growing population of regional data centers. The dark fiber route also enables diversity for core fiber routes connecting Northern Virginia to Atlanta.”

“DC BLOX’s investments in digital infrastructure in South Carolina, including the new Myrtle Beach Cable Landing Station, are providing the essential foundation to fuel significant economic advancement across our state,” says Henry McMaster, Governor of South Carolina.
