Today’s digitally-driven trading environments make every millisecond count. A buy or sell order executed faster than a blink of an eye could mean increased revenues or lost opportunities.

Local connectivity to these exchanges offers instant access to sources of market prices using the shortest fiber-optic routes in the Intra-Asia and Trans-Pacific subsea cable systems that Pacnet owns and manages.

Whether customers are trading currencies, equities, commodities or option, Pacnet Lightning empowers them with near-instant access to market information.
