The standard for low-latency, reliable, high-bandwidth communications between New York and Chicago.
Spread Networks® was built from the ground up to set a new standard for latency from Chicago to New York. We trenched a new route - a direct route with microseconds in mind-to provide firms with the fastest possible speed on the shortest possible route. For firms where every microsecond counts and who want full control over their network from Chicago to New York, Spread Networks offers dedicated ultra-low latency dark fiber networks, wavelength services, and collocation on the fastest path.
Spread Networks offers firms a fresh supply of dark fiber on a completely new route -the shortest possible route from Chicago to New York. Ideally suited for customers that demand complete operational control, low-latency and virtually limitless bandwidth, Spread Networks dark fiber is the ultimate solution.
Since May 1, Direct Edge has offered access to NY4 through a Connect Edge point of presence at CH4. It provides Chicago-based firms with the ability to cross-connect locally to Connect Edge's network of 18 market data feeds, nine exchanges and nine dark pools using the Spread Networks ultra low latency network between Chicago and the NY Metro area. Spread Networks owns and operates the fastest fiber optic network on this route.
Spread's flagship Ultra Low Latency Chicago-New York Dark Fiber service is now operational at a roundtrip latency of 12.98 milliseconds roundtrip, a 100 microsecond improvement from Spread's previous 13.1 millisecond offering.
Spread's new service offers customers access to 100 gigabits per second of optical bandwidth, unregenerated, on Spread's 14.6 millisecond round-trip best-latency-in-class Ultra Low Latency Chicago-New York Wavelength service.
