LONDON — October 18, 2016 — BSO, the global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider, announces its new relationship with Netrality Properties, owner and operator of network-neutral carrier hotels and colocation facilities, to establish a new Point of Presence (PoP) in BSO’s third on-net data centre in Chicago at 717 South Wells. This expansion benefits both BSO and Netrality customers, providing financial traders and other clients looking for fast, diverse, reliable connections with a single point of entry to BSO’s global, ultra-low latency network, which offers local infrastructure while also linking the Americas to Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. The move is BSO’s latest in its comprehensive and aggressive US expansion plan.

BSO’s move into 717 South Wells further emphasizes the company’s dedication to bringing its unique approach to connectivity to Chicago, the centre of the derivatives market and one of the world’s top financial trading hubs. BSO also has PoPs in Chicago’s E. Cermak and Aurora DC3 data centres; this third entry point provides increased diversity to customers accessing the network.
BSO’s key ultra low latencies into/out of Chicago include:
Chicago <> Moscow 105.40 ms RTD
