Direct connections to options exchange?

  1. I have a high speed strategy that looks like it has a 50millsecond time window to execute. Only problem is -- I can't possibly get this kind of execution speed without having the money to connect to the exchanges myself to begin with.

    How do I get around this technical limitation, and are there services that will resell some of their colocated or super-close infrastructure? Do I need to be a big-boy to get these kinds of speeds?
