Network

This page will give you an overview of our network, and help you make the best choice when you are purchasing a standard service, or configuring your own game server.

All our data centres are picked with the network performance in mind, ensuring all our services are provided with industry standard, high performance and optimised networking. However there are some key differences between them, these will be shown below.
