With Telkom’s unreliable network, gamers around South Africa are consistently dealing with lower latency times and jitter, turning online gaming into a bad experience for all. iBurst has announced its iGame Unlimited platform, which allows iBurst subscribers to connect straight to iBurst’s core, thus making the gaming experience a lot more rewarding.
Broadband provider iBurst has launched iGame Unlimited as the premium open gaming platform for South Africa¬πs online gaming community.
For only R99 per month, iBurst subscribers on the new any new iDSL package will have access to one of the fastest, most responsive gaming servers in South Africa, with a host of extra features to make online gaming better, easier and more rewarding. The biggest advantage is that for iGame Unlimited subscribers, all traffic to the iGame server is free (no longer counting towards your normal bandwidth cap.)
The iGame platform is open to all gamers in South Africa, connecting via any ISP, and has already become one of the largest gaming communities in the country. iGame Unlimited is available exclusively to iBurst iDSL customers to give them a host of exclusive benefits. For players that are not iBurst Wireless customers and want to subscribe to iGame Unlimited, they can pick up an 80 MB iDSL account for R19/month extra.
iGame Unlimited users not only have uncapped gaming bandwidth, but get preferential status with guaranteed game play even when the servers get busy, will receive priority support on the iGame community, and will be automatic entered into monthly prize pools.
