The event is aimed at providing computer and console gaming enthusiasts a first-hand experience of PTCL’s high speed internet. Online gaming has risen in popularity in Pakistan substantially ever since the introduction of broadband internet. Online gaming is enjoyed by a vast chunk of the youth and PTCL is making sure to provide the connection needed to play a multitude of games unhindered.
On the occasion, Moqeem ul Haque, Chief Commercial Officer, PTCL, said,
“Leveraging Etisalat Group’s digital services and experience in UAE, PTCL is providing a platform with unlimited internet and data, where nation’s tech savvy youth can experience seamless multi-player networked gaming within the country. It will also provide exciting opportunity to help boost the profile of Pakistan’s growing gaming community, offering a unique and integrated platform for the gaming community to socialize and compete on.”
PTCL, being the largest internet service provider, realizes that true gaming experience can only be achieved with best-in-class broadband services with optimized latency towards renowned gaming servers in the world. PTCL is actively engaged in route optimization and peering initiatives to achieve lower latency and an improved user experience for gaming on European and Asian servers.
Furthermore, PTCL has started to transform its network under the Network Transformation Project (NTP) with upgradation of top 100 exchanges across Pakistan. Under NTP, PTCL has already started offering Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) in selected areas in Pakistan with speeds up to 100mbps along with state-of-the-art technology, Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON). These new measures will ensure that gamers get to experience a seamless and immersive gaming experience without such hurdles that would cause any disruption in the experience.
Being a gamer myself, PTCL’s efforts are surely lauded and I expect many more improvements in the future. If you are in town you may want to check out PTCL’s gamers hub at FACE music mela.
