FinanceNet - high bandwidth services delivered across the shortest optical fibre paths to key financial exchanges

White Plains, N.Y. and London, April 7, 2011 -,After much success in the ultra low-latency arena, AboveNet Communications, a leading provider of high bandwidth connectivity solutions, today announced that it has further reduced the latency on its FinanceNet platform to less than 225 microseconds (one way) from Slough to the City of London.

FinanceNet addresses the demand for low latency connectivity between key financial districts, touching every major trading venue and financial exchange. All services are delivered over a secure, scalable fibre optic platform.

AboveNet`s dedicated fibre optic network is purpose built for ultra-low latency, supporting today`s demands from financial service organisations. AboveNet`s low latency portfolio benefits from the Agility Guarantee Programme, ensuring  customers receive guaranteed latency performance. In the competitive trading arena where multiple venues are claiming the fastest connections, AboveNet`s Agility Guarantee gives customers the security that these latency commitments are met.

"In today`s highly competitive financial markets, it is vital that the right connectivity choices are made when selecting mission critical network services. FinanceNet offers bandwidth flexibility as well as providing customers with the confidence that low latency is maintained using our Agility Guarantee Programme", said Alan Berryman, vice president, Sales and Marketing for AboveNet in Europe. "AboveNet will continue to invest heavily in its network to ensure it remains at the forefront of ultra-low latency networking," Berryman concluded.

AboveNet`s network extends into every major London data centre, trading venue and many financial service buildings across London with connectivity into Europe and the U.S.
