Global connectivity provider Avelacom just announced that it is expanding its footprint in Warsaw making it easier for latency sensitive clients in the financial services industry to access emerging markets in Europe.
Avelacom selected Atman Data Center colocation facility for its established connections with electronic trading ecosystem.

With its new POP at Atman Avelacom can provide its clients with the improved latency and throughput performance to connect to a wide range of financial institutions in Poland and integrate with its equity and derivatives market participants via a single cross connect.
Avelacom’s new PoP forms part of the company’s pan-European fiber network providing the shortest routes across global major trading venues and the cutting-edge data speed. The roundtrip latencies to/from financial companies in Poland and the region have been updated and are as follows:
- WSE <> London, LSE – 22.1 ms

This is why we’re expanding our footprint to provide more cross-border opportunities for the financial industry. Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) is on the radar of global investors that’s why we are here to help companies to speed up their trading and enhance customer experience.”, said Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s Managing Director.

We are proud of our carrier-neutrality and happy to connect customers already attracted by Atman Data Center solutions with other market players helping to expand and develop their business.”, commented Daniel Szcześniewski, Chief Marketing Officer in Atman.
