Game On…With Fiber: Why Gamers Need Fiber Connections to Excel
April 24th, 2020
Gamers need fast speeds and zero lag time to perform their best. That’s why fiber internet connections are a gamer’s best friend. With UTOPIA Fiber you can sign up for symmetrical speeds up to 10 Gbps, giving you the ultimate edge over your opponents. Here is our breakdown of the advantages of fiber internet for gamers.
You need fast, reliable internet to play video games and there is no internet on the market that is faster than fiber. Fiber optic cables perform at the speed of light, about 30 times faster than the average copper wire connections. The speed and reliability of fiber ensures that you’ll never have to worry about keeping up with your opponents again.
Nothing messes up a game more than lag time. In a first-person shooter game, if you lag out- you’re dead. Slow response time is caused by latency issues (the time your data takes to get to its destination and return). Latency can make even the fastest internet connections seem slow. With the speed of fiber, you’re guaranteed to get your data from point A to point B faster than anyone with a copper wire connection.
Gone are the days of going into video game shops to get the newest game, most gamers have started downloading their games directly onto their device. It’s easier, faster, and you don’t have to worry about losing or scratching your disk. But downloading your game is only convenient if your internet is fast enough to download the game quickly. With a 1 Gbps connection, you can download a game in about 7-15 minutes.
Direct connections are a gamer’s dream. All UTOPIA Fiber customers connect directly to our network. A direct connection to your home means you’re not sharing your speeds with your neighbors and you won’t see a slowdown at peak times. When other gamers start to lag out at 5pm as everyone gets done with work, your speeds won’t change.
Technology of the Future and Virtual Reality
UTOPIA Fiber is structured to integrate new technology as it is developed. As video game creators continue to improve their graphics, fiber optic speeds allow you to experience your game exactly as the creators intended. The newest wave of gaming is virtual reality games that allow you to virtually step into the game and interact with the characters and setting in a new way. But VR only works if your internet speeds can keep up. With a fiber connection, you will have more than enough bandwidth to enjoy your VR experience, lag free.
There’s only one choice for gamers when it comes to speed and reliability: fiber. If you’re a gamer who wants to improve your speeds, sign up for UTOPIA Fiber’s lightning fast internet here: https://www.utopiafiber.com/sign-up/#/start/
