BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) -  GlobeNet, an international wholesale provider of submarine capacity, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Oi (BOVESPA: TNLP3) (BOVESPA: TNLP4) (BOVESPA: TMAR3) (BOVESPA: TMAR5) (BOVESPA: TMAR6) (NYSE: TNE), announces today that it offers financial markets the lowest latency Express route between the Americas. Leveraging its more than 22,000 kilometers of submarine fiber optic cable connecting the Americas, GlobeNet delivers ultra-fast and reliable international capacity from New York, New York to Sao Paulo, Brazil with average round trip latency of 110 milliseconds.

Financial market firms such as hedge funds, brokers, market data providers and Exchanges are all vying to obtain the fastest, most reliable connectivity in order to conduct faster trades and financial transactions. In this highly competitive marketplace, the time it takes for a financial trade to be made -- often within milliseconds -- can mean the difference in millions of dollars gained or lost.

With fast service activation turnaround and a ring-protected subsea network availability in excess of 99.99%, its high-availability cable network is an optimal solution for carriers that are building out global networks for their financial clients.
