Advancing Network Performance in Esports with Network Next

We're proud to announce that we have partnered with Network Next to boost network performance for ESL players, beginning with CS:GO!

Network Next is a radically new way of linking networks together. A new internet built on a neutral marketplace where thousands of private networks compete on performance and price to carry traffic. Network Next's revolutionary solution is delivering significant packet loss and jitter reductions, and is lowering latency by as much as 300ms.

"The internet doesn't care about games," said Glenn Fiedler, founder and CEO of Network Next.

"Gamers experience this every time they play and get bad network performance. At Network Next, we think this just isn't good enough, and it's our mission to fix this, not just for games, but for all applications that need better network performance than the internet can provide today".

"Over the last year, the pandemic has caused the esports landscape to dramatically change and we have seen concurrent user numbers soar” said Trevor Schmidt, Vice President of ESL Online. "We want to ensure that the growing fanbase continues to enjoy the best possible gaming experience, and we believe Network Next can help make that happen."

More details of the partnership will be released in the coming weeks.

About Network Next:

"Founded in 2017, Network Next gives developers instant access to thousands of networks. Our goal is to put the application in control of the network and make premium network performance accessible to everyone. For more information, visit:"
