Facebook has announced a partnership with telecom infrastructure operator GlobeNet to build a 2,500-km subsea cable, called "Malbec", for high-speed internet in Argentina. The system will connect Argentina's capital of Buenos Aires with São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. When completed, it will be the first new submarine cable route to reach the Argentinian coast since 2001.

Within the context of GlobeNet’s broader subsea cable infrastructure, however, it will serve to improve connectivity between the United States and South America’s southern segment, including Argentina.
