GTT Expands Low Latency Reach

October 19th, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Yesterday, GTT Communications announced a series of new low latency routes around the globe, and simultaneously launched a new time synchronization service.  

The new low latency routes include NYC-Mexico City, Hong Kong to Tokyo, Hong Kong to Singapore, Mumbai to Singapore, and Johannesburg to London.  They bring the company’s total low-latency portfolio to more than 60 routes connecting over 130 financial exchanges.  Meanwhile the time synchronization service aims to give financial customers a single source of time across their global trading footprints.

This answers the question of what one gets when one combine’s Hibernia Networks’ financial business and transatlantic cable with the international network relationships that GTT acquired with the earlier deal for the Inteliquent/Tinet backbone.

GTT’s more recent M&A moves have been in the US with the acquisition of Global Capacity and pending purchase of Transbeam.  However, I wonder whether the next targets might come from overseas.
