The online gaming ecosystem in India has been conducive to tremendous growth in recent times. There are now more than 250 game development companies in the country, developing games for smartphones, gaming consoles, and PCs alike. Industry giants including the likes of Alibaba, Tencent, Nazara, AGTech Holdings, Youzu have invested in the Indian gaming market, harnessing the potential of growth of online gaming in the country. As of 2019, there were an approximate of 300 million online gamers in India. This number is expected to rise to a mind-boggling 628 million by the year 2022. It is expected that by the year 2024, the online gaming industry in India will be worth 250 billion Indian Rupees.

However, nothing can be a worse hindrance to a satisfying online gaming experience, than a weak internet connection that keeps interrupting that game of Fortnite or Call of Duty. Most ISPs in India fail to provide the kind of low-latency and high-speed internet connection that is required for a lag-free gaming session. With ACT Fibernet’s futuristic fiber-optic broadband internet connections, these issues disappear into thin air.

Recently, STEAM, which is the largest digital platform for PC gaming, made a comparative analysis of the top ISPs in the country on the basis of their average download speeds. According to the analysis, which was published in the Times of India, ACT Fibernet made it to the top of the list, with a staggering average download speed of 42 Mbps, making it the most consistent ISP in the country.

This development has also bought into light the relevance of LAN based gaming amongst the gaming community. Gaming tournaments held at a single physical space, often referred to as Gaming LAN or LAN parties, have been a relevant occurrence across the globe for gaming enthusiasts. Moreover, with the era of streaming making a significant impact on the strata of online gaming, ISPs like ACT Fibernet providing consistent speeds for seamless streaming have become popular. Hence, a reliable ISP is the need of the hour for the professional online gaming community, and ACT Fibernet ticks off all the aforementioned requirements and more!

Apart from this, there are other factors that make ACT Fibernet stand out as the best ISP for online gaming in India. The fiber optics technology used by ACT provides a dedicated connection to online gamers. With a 1:1 contention ratio, gamers can enjoy a personal and uncontended bandwidth. With nobody else to share the bandwidth with, the online streaming of the game does not suffer a lag even during peak hours of the day. ACT Fibernet also provides significantly fast latency and ping rates ensuring the least delay in the transfer of data to and from the users’ connected device to the game server.

Speed is crucial in any online game. While most ISPs provide what they call an ‘up to’ download and upload speed, ACT Fibernet delivers what it promises. If the pack promises 175 Mbps, gamers get 175 Mbps. Moreover, with fiber optic technology, gamers get a symmetrical download and upload speed making online streaming of a game becomes absolutely smooth and seamless.

ACT Fibernet has taken it upon itself to usher in new possibilities into the online gaming ecosystem of India. It has partnered up with Cyprus-based gaming developer called Wargaming, to bring the World of Warship game to India. ACT has also partnered up with Zotac Gaming, Western Digital, and Games The Shop, bringing several benefits and vouchers for online gaming aficionados.

ACT Fibernet has also launched Gaming Booster Packs that bring exclusive benefits to subscribers. The ACT A-Game Basic Plan priced at Rs. 500 + GST and ACT A-Game Ultra pack priced at Rs. 2000 + GST have validity for one month and six months respectively. These packs allow gamers to boost up their speeds up to 300 Mbps and get extra data up to 1800 Gb.

ACT Fibernet is thus changing the scene for online gaming in India one dedicated connection at a time. With its staggering speeds, low-latency and ping rates, valuable partnerships with game developing companies, and technical support for gaming enthusiasts, it has created a benchmark for ISPs in the country.
