IDNet launch broadband package for online gamers


We’re thrilled to announce our new broadband offering for the online gaming community.

The IDNet network is particularly suited for online gaming because it combines low latency, fast pings, a static IP address and plenty of undersubscribed bandwidth to ensure a fast stable connection – the perfect conditions for competitive online gaming.

Director Tim Davies says “Our aim is to give pro-gamers an edge over their opponents. Anyone serious about gaming will know there’s nothing more frustrating than being outfought or outmanoeuvred just because your internet connection is laggy or becomes slow at peak times. For customers choosing this package, we’ll ensure traffic priority 24/7 so that your gaming data jumps to the front of the queue at the exchange…”

Tim continues “We know that when gamers worry about maxing out their download allowance, it can spoil the whole gaming experience. So we’ve included truly unlimited downloads as part of the package. Added to this, we’ve set up direct peering arrangements with prominent gaming host/server networks to make the connection as seamless as possible.”

The gaming broadband package also comes with a “battle-ready” pre-configured router. The IDNet support team have tested a number of routers across their network and have identified their top three which customers can choose from.

They are:

» ASUS RT- AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router with Comtrend VDSL Modem

» TP-Link AC1900 Wireless Gigabit VDSL/ADSL Modem Router Archer VR900

» Netduma R1 Router with Comtrend VDSL Modem

(Note: The Asus and Netduma routers come with a Comtrend modem while the TP-Link unit has a built in modem)

We’ve created a microsite environment for pro-gamers to review and configure gaming package options, prices, and router specifications.
