As latency sensitive clients seek the latest liquidity sites, they look to Options to connect them with agility to the highest quality data sources available. Australia is fast becoming one of the hottest colocation sites in the Asia-Pacific region. Having already taken clients live in ASX and SY2, we now have firm interest in ME1, placing Australia well and truly on the Options network.
