PTCL Makes Connections With Valves Dubai Servers To Get Better Ping


Ping is the most biggest factor in online gaming quality ( the higher the worse ) and PTCL acknowledges that and is on the run to improve that, previously back in 2013 PTCL improved their connections in the Europe and Singapore region and now PTCl has taken it a step further by going after dubai’s servers

Users will now have 25-75 ms lag free latency to enjoy on games such as Dota 2 and CSGO.

Previously Pakistani gamers could only play using the European and Singapore’s servers with an average ping of 170 but now Dubai enables us to get better results for gaming in pakistan which means that low ping will get us smooth, fast and lag free gaming.

Even though PTCL tried to make connections with Dubai’s servers but could not due to some limitations on both sides but now they were abe to obtain transit with valve’s network provider in Dubai due to which direct peering is now possible.

Transit route to Valve;s dubai servers:

Pakistani Gamers should now get major improvements in gaming and hopefully it will continue
to improve!
