Will Custom Connect break another latency record between Mainland Europe and the UK?

At this moment in time our microwave connections between Frankfurt and London are the fastest in the industry. Now we are supporting another speed record breaking initiative: a rowing challenge between Rotterdam in The Netherlands and London.

The Dutch Marines Rowing Challenge is in aid of marines that suffer trauma from their work in war zones across the world. 140 Dutch marines will row across the North Sea to Sheerness and from there to London. They start in the Port of Rotterdam on 5 September and after a stopover in Vlissingen they are expected to arrive at London Bridge on 12 September. They will immediately join the Great River Race in London. This marathon is a spectacular 21.6 mile boat race up the River Thames attracting over 330 crews from all over the globe and appeals to every level of competitor, from those who enjoy fun, fancy dress and charity stunts, to serious sportsmen and women who want to win.

Custom Connect is happy to be sponsoring the Challenge. “In a world of microseconds and bytes, it is fun to do one’s bit in the domain of brute muscle force, seamanship and camaraderie. For once, we will calculate in hours instead of in microseconds. We sympathize very much with the objectives of the challenge. We are happy to support our marines. They really need it,” said Olav van Doorn, Custom Connect’s CEO.
