Fiber-optic network services provider euNetworks Group Ltd. (SGX: H23.SI) says it has signed a contract to provide U.S. counterpart Hudson Fiber Network (HFN) with its euTrade service portfolio. The services will provide HFN with an ultra-low-latency connection between an exchange in central London and an exchange in Slough, to the west of London.

euNetworks began marketing services on the route in 2010 (see "euNetworks expands low-latency European finance network"). Using its new capacity, HFN will be able to serve its U.S. financial customers looking for connectivity to the London markets.

“We selected euNetworks to deliver this ultra low latency connectivity solution in London due to their service performance, reputation, and ability to rapidly deliver this route,” said Brett Diamond, president of HFN. “As we develop our European presence to serve our client’s needs, we need to be working with a network provider who we trust and who can continue to deliver low-latency solutions as our needs grow. We are confident euNetworks is the right partner for our business.”

“HFN is focused on continuing to deliver efficiency and high performance to their clients, whether in the U. S., Europe or another region,” said Uwe Nickl, chief marketing officer of euNetworks. “We are delighted to be working with the HFN team and look forward to growing our relationship, further supporting their client’s needs in Europe.”
