Fastest route from Chicago to Tokyo?
Everyone knows that Spread has the fastest Chicago – NY/NJ route, but I don’t know anything about the options from Chicago to Tokyo.
What is the fastest route and how fast does it go? I assume that fiber beats satellite, but I’m happy to be corrected.
PC1 is the fastest at 128ms RTD.
—-You will need to take the fastest hop to California and then to Japan.
The issues there by the way are why I put the NIST Timebase into the Nomura Trading Center on Shinjuku back in 2001 (no that was not Amano – it was me – I was Amano’s client and well, lets just say I was less than impressed with their work there).
—-if your interested my firm NTT owns PC1 and I can give you a quote. Also we are lighting the new CME facility in Aurora going straight west to Seattle and the PC1 landing station to Tokyo… Sub 127ms
currently do Tokyo to Chicago at 127.1 msec, with very tight SLAs. We can offer you 127.1 from 350 East Cermak to our Trading Avenue in Shiohama, Tokyo. We can also offer you Tokyo to Aurora. Would be glad to discuss this further.
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
