McKay Brothers is building out its microwave network to connect London with Milan and Zurich at what it says is the lowest known latency. The company also expects to extend its Quincy Extreme Data (QED) service, an integrated and normalised feed of select market data sourced from and provided in trading colocation centres around the world, to Milan and Zurich.

The London to Milan and Zurich links will connect UK data centres Slough-LD4 and Basildon with trading hubs in Milan and Zurich. The Milan connection will go live in mid-October, while the Zurich link s planned to go live in the first quarter of next year.

With the addition of Milan and Zurich, McKay Brothers will offer private bandwidth services among 10 European trading centres located across the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Switzerland. The remainder of McKay’s 20 global points of presence are located at trading hubs in Illinois, New Jersey, Japan, and Singapore.
