Nuvem is a new transatlantic subsea cable system to connect Portugal, Bermuda, and the United States.
Named after the Portuguese word for “cloud,” Nuvem will improve network resiliency across the Atlantic, helping meet growing demand for digital services.
The Nuvem cable system is a private cable owned by Google, supplied by SubCom.
In the U.S., the Nuvem cable system will land in South Carolina, following in the footsteps of Firmina which connects Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay and lands at the Myrtle Beach CLS in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
In Portugal, the Nuvem cable system will land in the Sesimbra CLS where Googls's Equiano subsea cable has landed.
In Bermuda, the Government of Bermuda has undertaken significant efforts to attract investment in subsea cable infrastructure and create a digital Atlantic hub — including passing new legislation to create cable corridors and streamline permitting. Nuvem will not only be the first cable to land under this robust environment, but the first to connect Bermuda with Europe.
The Nuvem cable system is expected to be ready for service in 2026, adding to Google's portfolio of subsea cable assets.
