AboveNet’s FinanceNet Platform delivers the lowest latency routes across key financial exchanges in London

White Plains, N.Y. and London, October 26, 2011 – Building on the success of AboveNet’s recent announcement of the shortest route from the City of London to Slough, AboveNet Communications, a leading provider of high bandwidth connectivity solutions, today unveiled a new dedicated FinanceNet platform between the community data centre of Interxion in the City and a key multilateral trading facility in Slough.

This new route not only delivers the lowest latency connections that are essential for the performance efficiency and productivity demands in the financial markets, but also provides the security, reliability and resilience in and between exchanges and key locations.

“AboveNet has built a unique, dedicated ultra-low latency route enabling it to offer the fastest connection ever between these key financial communities. As a leading provider of premium low latency routes, it is imperative to be able to serve the market demand for low latency connectivity and we are constantly challenging ourselves to widen the gap between our current routes and our competition,” said Brett Johnson, vice president, Business Development for AboveNet Europe.

AboveNet’s London network links all London`s major financial regions and extends into every major London datacentre and exchange. A key feature of AboveNet’s network is the technology that is used to deliver industry leading service levels. “We provision a native Ethernet/Wavelength service, built on next generation carrier class platforms with 1Gbps and 10Gbps connections allowing us to deliver secure, low latency, high bandwidth solutions” said Brett Johnson. “We are particularly proud of our latest enhancement, between the City and Slough, and are confident that our routes offer the best and lowest latency available between these key locations,” Johnson concluded.
