DC BLOX, a premier provider of connected data centers and fiber network solutions in the Southeast US, announced that its new dark fiber route connecting its Myrtle Beach Cable Landing Station (CLS) to Atlanta has been completed. This unique high-capacity East-West route serves as the new backbone to the Southeast region enabling hyperscalers, global and regional communications providers, local ISPs and enterprises to connect regionally and internationally.

On the heels of DC BLOX's announcement that it has completed its new Cable Landing Station (CLS) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in October 2023, this new network enables direct terrestrial connectivity from the CLS to the rapidly growing data center and communications center of Atlanta. The route runs from Myrtle Beach, SC, near Charleston, SC, through Augusta, GA to the major downtown connectivity centers in Atlanta including 56 Marietta Street, and on to the growing data center base in Lithia Springs, GA.

The DC BLOX East-West route offers route diversity for data traffic between Northern Virginia and Atlanta. Windstream has previously announced its Beach Route, which will provide connectivity from Raleigh North Carolina to Myrtle Beach, SC and then to points further South.

DC BLOX is also building a dark fiber ring around Atlanta which will connect into two hyperscale-ready data center facilities in development east and west of the city. The metro-Atlanta fiber ring will also connect to the East-West route further expanding global connectivity options from the area.

With the East-West route passing through many rural areas along its path across South Carolina and Georgia, the route serves as a network express route to Atlanta for ISPs and local Cooperatives who are building broadband services for underserved and rural communities, contributing to efforts to bridge the digital divide.
