MILAN, ITALY – July 29th, 2010
Tinet, formerly the carrier arm of Tiscali Group, the only global carrier exclusively committed to the IP and Ethernet wholesale market, announces today the addition of a new terrestrial route to its backbone between Hong Kong and Europe.
The new low latency route runs over the Transit Europe-Asia (TEA) cable system, extending over a terrestrial path from Stockholm, Sweden, across Russia and China, and into Hong Kong.
“Tinet’s acquisition of the capacity on the TEA systems adds further value, both in terms of increased network diversity and improved latency for our IP Transit and Ethernet customers, particularly those who run time-sensitive applications,” remarks Paolo Susnik, CEO of Tinet.
“The route is indicative of Tinet’s continued focus on the needs of our wholesale customers who engage in carrier solutions to the financial trading markets, VoIP and other time sensitive applications.”
