PlusNet (www.plus.net) has this morning launched a new package named Broadband Your Way Pro specifically targeted at online gamers looking for a fast low latency connection to have a pleasant gaming experience.
The package which is available on a month-by-month contract at £19.99 (incl. VAT) makes use of PlusNet's traffic management technology, but rather than being slowed down, it is given the highest priority. Users will also be able to select to switch off interleaving which can improve the connection speeds. It includes a 10GB usage allowance for the peak hours from 08:00 and 23:59 with no restrictions during the night. Gaming and VoIP traffic will be in the Titanium queue whilst all other traffic is treated as Gold.
"PlusNet's low ping rates make it the obvious choice for any gamer. When you're competing online, connecting to the gaming server first can give you a real advantage over your competition and help you build up high scores."Mitchell Davis, Battlefield 2 Player & PlusNet user
Those customers who find 10GB doesn't meet their requirements will be able to purchase additional blocks of 2GB for £1.50 in advance, or £1.80 in arrears. If they do reach the limit and don't opt to pay more, they can still receive a 128 Kbps internet service until the end of the month. Customers can also receive a free 4-port wireless router if they stay with the service for 12 months.
