The exchange has signed a multi-year deal with Savvis that will enable it to provide data services to 85% of banks in the US and half of banks in Asia.
Savvis has built a point of presence - a physical location holding switches, servers and routers - in London that will link to the point of presence built by the stock exchange's network supplier Verizon.
The exchange's head of real-time data information services, Wendy Morgan, said the new set-up was needed because a direct connection was not usually viable for clients outside Europe.
