Lattelecom and Golden Telecom announce new IP transit channel

24 Jul 2007

Lattelecom and Golden Telecom have jointly launched a new high speed internet channel which will boost traffic speeds to up to 1Gbps between Latvia and Russia. Traffic was previously routed indirectly through London and Frankfurt. The new channel is transmitted through Stockholm, which enables data to reach Moscow from Riga in 36 milliseconds, more than twice as fast as before. The first beneficiaries of the high speed launch are Lattelecom’s broadband clients.
