Level 3 Communications has announced it has added ultra-low-latency network routes to Milan and Zurich to its European financial services portfolio.

The routes are available from London, Frankfurt, Madrid, New York City and Chicago, and will provide financial exchanges and trading venues with access to all six major European financial centres as well as key U.S. centres.

"In today's financial services market, particularly in high-frequency trading, the goal is to have the fastest connection to the most important financial hubs, so choosing the right network partner for that connectivity is critical," said James Heard, president of European Markets. "Not only are we regularly upgrading our network to consistently offer the fastest routes, we have the network reach to give our customers access to more of the world's financial centers from a single provider."
