 Running on Wireplay ( Broadband for Gamers is first package to offer enhanced performance especially for gamers

freedom2surf has launched Broadband 4 Gamers (BB4G) – the industry’s first broadband package, designed especially for gamers to maximise their online experience. Priced at £24.99 per month, BB4G is an up to 8MB service with a difference, offering 50 per cent lower ping times , prioritised traffic and just two hops between the gamer’s router and the game server.

BB4G is ideal for games that require a smooth uninterrupted broadband connection, such as first-person shooters and role playing games. With no traffic management to interrupt play and a generous 50Gb bandwidth allowance, BB4G is built with the gamer’s needs in mind.

Performance is also enhanced by running games across the Wireplay ( platform, since gaming servers share racks in the datacentre where the gamer’s ADSL connection terminates.

Richard Manly, freedom2surf’s consumer product marketing manager, says, "The launch of this new service marks a turning point in online gaming. Most broadband connections are fine for web surfing and downloading music, but gamers need a service that’s optimised for performance. Broadband 4 Gamers is available now and meets gamers’ needs head-on.”

Broadband 4 Gamers also comes with a host of features including: 500 minutes of free home phone calls, 20 email addresses with 200mb storage for each, 200mb of webspace and 20Gb Giganews group allowance. Switching is free from gamer’s existing broadband service and, unlike other ISPs, freedom2surf doesn’t tie them into a lengthy 18 month contract. The service also comes with free access to a wide selection of games on Wireplay including the Half Life series, Quake 2 and Ultima, with more titles on the horizon.
