Subscribe to our newsletter

Colt has reduced latency between Tokyo and London financial centres to less than 159 milliseconds. The network optimisation is part of the company’s ongoing investment in the Colt IQ Network and is designed to support trading strategies that rely on low latency infrastructure.

Andrew Housden, vice president of capital markets at Colt, says: “We are committed to providing global financial firms with a very fast and reliable network infrastructure and superior customer experience. This is why we are investing heavily in low latency connectivity between the key financial centres and exchanges in Asia, Europe and North America.”

The enhanced Tokyo to London link is part of the company’s three-year investment plan that has already improved latency on Colt’s Chicago to Tokyo network route and key Asia-Pacific routes.
