Colt and Sea Fibre Networks pave the way for lowest latency route between Dublin and London

It’s great to be involved in an exciting project to build the lowest latency route between Dublin and London utilising the new CeltixConnect undersea cable announced by Sea Fibre Networks on Tuesday.  The new cable provides the shortest network connection between Ireland and the UK and will double the data capacity between these key online media markets.

We will integrate this new route into our 35,000km pan-European network and data centre infrastructure over the coming weeks, enabling our customers to connect at very high speeds around Europe and beyond.

This investment also demonstrates Colt’s desire for innovation and development.  We are determined to be seen as one of the key low latency providers in Europe and this relationship with Sea Fibre Networks and the use of their new CeltixConnect cable undoubtedly shows our commitment to this.

Given the precarious state of the Irish economy, is this a good investment?

Replying to...
"Given the precarious state of the Irish economy, is this a good investment?"

8 out of 10 global ICT firms have industry sectors in Ireland 10 'born on the internet' companies have Irish bases 9 out of 19 global pharma giants have Irish bases 3 out of 5 top games companies are located in Ireland 17 out of 25 global medical device companies are located in Ireland More than 50pc of the world's leading financial services firms have Irish bases... Whatever about the general economy, I think Irelands Digital Economy is booming and this is a great opportunity for Colt. The last sub-sea cable laid between Ireland and the UK was over a decade ago. I think this is a wise investment from Colt. Well done to both companies involved!
