The BRICS “Independent Internet” Cable. In Defiance of the “US-Centric Internet”

The message from BRICS to America is quite clear:

Dear USA,

You are a dying nation — a dead man walking with a worthless fiat currency we’re already dumping. We are putting you out of commission one step at a time, with this being one of them, and the world will do just fine without you.

BRICS Cable… a 34 000 km, 2 fibre pair, 12.8 Tbit/s capacity, fibre optic cable system

The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff announces publicly the creation of a world internet system INDEPENDENT from US and Britain ( the “US-centric internet”).

Not many understand that, while the immediate trigger for the decision (coupled with the cancellation of a summit with the US president) was the revelations on NSA spying, the reason why Rousseff can take such a historic step is that the alternative infrastructure: The BRICS cable from Vladivostock, Russia  to Shantou, China to Chennai, India  to Cape Town, South Africa  to Fortaleza, Brazil,  is being built and it’s, actually, in its final phase of implementation.

No amount of provocation and attempted “Springs” destabilizations and Color Revolution in the Middle East, Russia or Brazil can stop this process.  The huge submerged part of the BRICS plan is not yet known by the broader public.

Nonetheless it is very real and extremely effective. So real that international investors are now jumping with both feet on this unprecedented real economy opportunity. The change… has already happened.

Brazil plans to divorce itself from the U.S.-centric Internet over Washington’s widespread online spying, a move that many experts fear will be a potentially dangerous first step toward politically fracturing a global network built with minimal interference by governments.

  • For any global investor, there is no crisis – there is plenty of growth. It’s just not in the old world
  • BRICS is ~45% of the world’s population and ~25% of the world’s GDP
  • BRICS together create an economy the size of Italy every year… that’s the 8th largest economy in the world
  • The BRICS presents profound opportunities in global geopolitics and commerce
  • Links Russia, China, India, South Africa, Brazil – the BRICS economies – and the United States.
  • Interconnect with regional and other continental cable systems in Asia, Africa and South America for improved global coverage
  • Immediate access to 21 African countries and give those African countries access to the BRICS economies.
  • Projected ready for service date is mid to second half of 2015.

  1. Wait, what? So you are cutting yourselves off from 55% of the world’s population and 75% of the world’s money??? Good luck with that. Balkanization sure hasn’t helped the Balkans any… a Luddite mentality didn’t stop sewing machines from happening!

  2. You are aware that it’s not the cable, but the servers along it, that can be compromised, right? And unless you plan to disconnect all those countries from the regular internet, it will be business as usual. Because even one link between the two will allow penetration.
