Install A Second Broadband Line Into Your Home
Here at Gaming Broadband, we aim to provide UK gamers with the best broadband for gaming, and therefore we give our customers the option to migrate their existing broadband line to us, or to install a new, second broadband line into their home. If you choose to install a new broadband line, you will then have two broadband lines running into your household: your current line with your current supplier and a new one supplied by Gaming Broadband. These broadband lines will be separate from one another and will each have to have their own router.
Why Install A Second Broadband Line For Gaming?
Installing a second broadband line in your home, just for gaming, can be extremely beneficial for you. By having two separate broadband lines in your home, you can use one connection for everyday use, such as streaming YouTube/Netflix, browsing the web or even for work purposes, and the other can be used just for your gaming devices. By splitting the connection, it means that there is less strain on the bandwidth and less usage on the network, resulting in higher broadband speeds for you.
For example, if you have an 80mb broadband line in your home and you have 8-10 devices all using the same connection at the same time, it is going to reduce your bandwidth, resulting in a slower broadband speed. Consequently, as gamers will know, this will have a negative impact on your gaming experience. However, installing a second broadband line into your home through Gaming Broadband means you could have two 80mb (or higher if available) broadband lines running into your home. Therefore you can connect your gaming devices to the broadband line we provide and keep all your other devices (mobile phone/smart TV etc.) connected to your original broadband line. This means that your devices will no longer all be sharing one 80mb broadband line, but instead be split across two 80mb lines. This will result in faster broadband speeds for both your gaming devices and your everyday devices, improving your connection for both.
