LONDON -- Band-X, the bandwidth exchange, today announced that the Telecoms Trading Exchange (TTE), its IP transit trading platform in Scotland, has gone live ahead of schedule and secured its first customer. Today's launch immediately increases supplier choice and lowers wholesale prices available in the region.Glasgow-based hosting specialist EQSN is the exchange's first customer. It will buy IP transit from the TTE to provide its customers with additional resilient, high-quality connectivity to the Internet. EQSN can be confident it will continue to offer its customers the best services because the Band-X exchange gives it objective quality information to select the best provider, and the ability to change provider seamlessly."We are delighted that EQSN has recognised it can gain a competitive edge by connecting to Band-X and benefit from increased choice, price and quality of IP transit. Through a local connection, EQSN has become part of the largest market for IP transit via Band-X's proven technology," said Richard Elliott, Band-X Chairman.The TTE forms part of Scottish Enterprise's drive to increase broadband links to businesses across Scotland. Scottish ISPs can now compare information and wholesale prices via a dedicated website and purchase IP transit in Scotland from leading international networks at London prices.
