ASX decreases international network latency with Net Global

New service will allow global customers to connect to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) faster.

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) has rolled out a networking solution called ASX Net Global which is designed to improve latency when international customers trade on the local stock exchange.

Net Global links the Australian Liquidity Centre (ALC) in Sydney with SGX Singapore, Interxion London and Equinix Chicago. The service will also support ALC customers who want to connect with these sites in Asia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
