London - Network provider BSO has optimised the speed across its London to Tokyo route as currency traders escalate their demands for faster trading. The upgrade will affect the London-Tokyo part of BSO's FX triangle, providing traders with the lowest latency on the market.

Tokyo witnessed FX turnover of $399 billion last year, according to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS). The revamped route means even lower latency, which can help BSO's FX client base to increase the volume of trades they can execute through the network.

"Every millisecond counts, and with MiFID II just around the corner, the voice to computer-based trading shift is gathering increasing momentum," says Fraser Bell, Chief Revenue Officer at BSO.
