I have been using IQFeed data for backesting. But now, that i am going to 'make it real', I need low latency data feed, for fast execution (Not crazy low latency, but as I have seen, your Data Center is in Omaha, far away from NY, and the latency is 50-100ms).

Is there any other possibility?

Probably NxCore? Does it have lower latency? Where is their data center?

Thank you,
Rocha

Hello, it is true that all of our datacenters are located in or around Omaha. However, we have dedicated lines from the exchanges into our facilities to reduce latency on the incoming side. Of course IQFeed sends data out to customers over the internet and is subject to whatever routing happens between our datacenters and your machine. What this means is that our Central US location allows us to service our east coast and west coast customers equally (or at least as equally and cost effectively as we can control).

While we don't claim to be an ultra low latency feed, it is possible to collocate a machine pretty close to our datacenters (I've seen as low as about 20-25ms realistically possible). It is best to search for a datacenter in Chicago, Denver, or Dallas (in that order) since most of our internet traffic travels through those 3 cities from my experience.

Keep in mind that you would also want to take into consideration where your order execution servers are located as well since it doesn't do any good to have lightning fast signals that can't be filled before they go stale.
