Level 3 implements Low-Latency Fiber from London to Frankfurt

Level 3 Communications has upgraded its fiber-optic network from London to Frankfurt to improve latency on this route as well as the Frankfurt-to-New York and Frankfurt-to-Chicago routes. Low network latency is a key advantage for financial exchanges and other trading venues.

Level 3 is now offering customers two grades of performance for ultra-low-latency routes, with access to circuit speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second. These two grades, Premier and Advanced, will allow customers to choose between two latency route speeds based on their specific requirements. Premier customers will have access to the faster ultra-low-latency route. Both of these levels are then backed by Level 3's latency service level agreement (SLA).
