Avelacom has announced that it has extended its connectivity offerings to South Africa, enabling trading firms to access the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in a fast and reliable way. The company has launched a long-haul fibre route between London (LD4) and the JSE through its new point-of-presence (PoP) in Johannesburg. Its primary path connects London and Johannesburg along the west coast of Africa, delivering 155.8 milliseconds round-trip latency. “We have closed the quality gap in connectivity between London and Johannesburg, which was previously a barrier to trading volume growth. Our main focus was to create backup connections which allowed us to reach 99.9% uptime guarantee and meet the expectations of our global financial institution clients,” said Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s Managing Director.
