@sam028 can probably give you a better idea. I'm sure he's familiar with lagtime issues from Australia to CME. My impression is that there are many Australian traders who don't have that great an issue, but I'm not really familiar with the situation there. I was commenting on the general question of a colocated server near CME in Chicago, more than the original issue you raised regarding your access from Australia. (Sorry for the tangent.)


From Australia to CQG Chicago it's around 250 ms.

@Revan: your bandwidth is fine, the market data don't need a lot.
Whatever you do, being connected to CQG servers in Australia you will still get 250 ms-300 ms latency so you should be careful during news and very volatile times.
