The IT solutions provider have created a new IP transit solution after observing data traffic gaming routes during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The new innovative solution will offer consumers latency reductions through dedicated connections between international gaming servers. For example, gamers located on the African continent and southern hemisphere will expect to see a reduction in lag from anywhere between 20% to 50%. 

They have already experienced serious success during a live simulation between gamers in Africa and South America where they managed a reduction in ping between 70 and 100ms. In recent years, many gamers in Africa have been heavily affected by poor connections resulting in a lot of lag. However, Angola Cables’ new game-altering solution will be received with open arms by these gamers as it will significantly reduce their latency. 

How the solution works

Selecting optimal routes between international gaming nodes and end users, the solution provides consumers with direct hyper connections, better quality, improved ping and less lag. Internet providers who are directly connected to Angola Cables’ own network will be able to offer its consumers zero delays in connectivity, allowing for a more optimal gaming experience. 

The solution also benefits gamers who use international platforms such as Xbox, Blizzard, Sony and many more as they can also take advantage of the better connectivity and improved latencies.
