0 comments

Internet Solutions is sponsoring South Africa’s premier gaming event – rAge – for the third consecutive year and will be providing a record breaking 5Gbps of bandwidth. 
It is anticipated that the overall 122Tb of Internet traffic served during rAge in 2014, which consisted of 99,6Tb downloaded, and 22,4Tb uploaded, will be exceeded during this year’s event, and Internet Solutions is well prepared for this.

“Internet Solutions is going bigger, better and faster at rAge 2015 demonstrating our continued commitment to the gaming community by providing Internet speeds that have not yet been seen on the African continent,” says Greg Montjoie, executive, Connectivity at Internet Solutions.

“We’ve made huge investments to be able to provide record breaking speeds for both Area 51 and the NAG LAN inside the Dome, where over 2 000 hard-core gamers will be able to properly enter alternate realities for the three day event, thanks to the super-quick Internet access that will be available for the duration.”

Kicking things up from last year’s great delivery, Internet Solutions’ believes speeds will exceed 5Gbps this year and is able to cater for this, giving all 40 000 gamers, exhibitors and visitors at the massive event access to the quickest, hottest broadband around.

“The NAG LAN and many other aspects of the rAge expo are possible because of Internet Solutions’ sponsorship. They are providing all NAG LAN attendees with Internet access speeds not experienced at the event previously,” says Michael James, senior project manager for rAge and publisher of NAG. “Several sponsors make significant contributions to the success of rAge, and having the super fast Internet access speeds that Internet Solutions is providing to our gamers, visitors and exhibitors means that the expo stands proud as a multifaceted event geared particularly for the gaming community.”

The annual rAge 2015 expo will take place at the Ticketpro Dome, Northgate in Johannesburg from Friday 9 October to Sunday 11 October 2015. Tickets are available from Computicket or at the door.
