DC BLOX, Inc. is currently completing construction of the Myrtle Beach Cable Landing Station (Myrtle Beach CLS) with a planned opening in June 2023.  This highly specialized facility will provide power to the subsea cables to regenerate the optical signal, host local network equipment associated with the cables, provide colocation space for cable partners and local businesses, and serve as a regional exchange point for communications providers.

Edge Cable Holdings USA, LLC will be landing a state-of-the-art trans-Atlantic subsea telecommunications cable, the Anjana cable, at the Myrtle Beach CLS. The Myrtle Beach CLS will house the power and telecommunications equipment necessary for the operation of the subsea cable system, as well as the telecommunications equipment needed to link the subsea cable to the wider North American telecommunications network. The 7,121km Anjana cable will connect Myrtle Beach, SC to Santander in Spain and is capable of carrying 480 Terabits per second of data communications traffic. The Anjana cable is expected to be operational in 2024.

DC BLOX, Inc. is a leader in providing reliable and secure tier III data centers, connectivity services, and dark fiber solutions to businesses in growing markets across the Southeastern, United States. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the Myrtle Beach facility will be the second data center the company has built in South Carolina, the other in Greenville.  The company is also building a new high-capacity terrestrial dark fiber optic route from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta that will greatly improve network capacity between Myrtle Beach and the largest communications market in the Southeast.

Prior to the Anjana cable, Google‘s Firmina cable system connecting USA to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay has confirmed to land at the Myrtle Beach CLS. Google has contracted with DC BLOX to provide the landing facilities and colocation for an initial term of 15 years that could be extended by Google to 25 years.

Additionally, the Confluence-1 submarine cable will be likely to land at the Myrtle Beach CLS.
