London, UNITED KINGDOM – 1 September 2010 – euNetworks Group Limited, announced it has launched the first phase of an overlay network, dedicated exclusively to the needs of the financial community. The network platform is supported by dedicated fibre and dedicated optronics, ensuring euNetworks’ euTrade services provide the lowest possible latency.
As a company who specialises in designing, engineering and building ultra low latency connectivity networks, deploying a network exclusively for the finance market is a natural step in continuing to support the bandwidth needs of the financial services community.
