Over in Europe, euNetworks has stretched its fiber reach to the north and east. The independent pan-European operator has announced the addition of a fiber route up to Stockholm to its inventory, taking its low latency capabilities to the Scandanavian financial center down another notch. They have also established a beachhead in Moscow.
It’s not euNetworks’ first move into Sweden, they started serving ultra-low latency bits there almost three years ago on leased waves. Demand from the financial vertical has apparently risen to levels supporting a bigger investment on that route. Their new round-trip latency benchmark between London and Stockholm is 21ms, down another 5%.
And the same vertical has euNetworks moving into Russia, adding low latency connectivity to Moscow to its euTrade services. More specifically, round trip performance of 38.19ms between Interxion London and M1 Moscow MICEX with further optimizations planned. Of course, the Stockholm to Moscow part of that is surely on leased waves for now, but who knows fiber could be the next step there too.
