First Communications, a regional competitive communications provider, has expanded its low-latency fiber route to Toronto, delivering service to key financial sites within Canada, including 151 Front Street and 100 Wellington (Q9) in Toronto, as well as 3500 Steeles Street in Markham.

First Communications' service to 100 Wellington includes a bypass to 151 Front Street, which is crucial for financial brokerages, trading firms, hedge funds, and banks. The new routes also will appeal to carriers, service providers, and Internet service providers (ISPs) that need reliable, high-speed service to compete in their markets, says a representative.
"We have deployed the low-latency route between Toronto and New Jersey or New York, and we are pleased to make that route available to additional key financial market locations in Canada," says Rick Poore, president of First Telecom Services LLC, dba First Communications.
The new route broadens First Communications' low-latency offerings and provides the market with additional options, resulting in both service provider and route diversity in the geographic area. The expansion augments First Communications' existing routes to Chicago and Washington, D.C./Ashburn, providing low-latency routes to the financial industry and carriers.
