UK ISP To Prioritize Gaming Traffic

nk497 writes “A UK ISP is now offering a broadband package just for gamers, which will prioritize their traffic to give them an edge over rival players. Demon Internet has also set up direct networks with gaming companies to boost speeds, and is promising lower latency and a higher usage cap than standard packages. ‘Looking at the usage of gamers, it’s actually more akin to a small business,’ the company said. While paying to get specific content streamed more quickly may worry net neutrality campaigners, Demon says it has enough capacity for its own customers and that’s who it’s looking out for.”
