Monet is owned by Algar Telecom (a Brazilian telecom company and ISP), Angola Cables (an Angolan telecom company operating in the wholesale market), ANTEL (the Uruguayan telecom company) and Google.

The 100G-capable cable system will provide a low latency route from Brazil to North America with a minimum bandwidth of 60 Tbps.

The Boca Raton landing is the third of three shore landings successfully installed by TE SubCom for the Monet Cable. Shore landings were completed earlier this year in Fortaleza and Praia Grande, Brazil.
