We are excited to lead Network Next’s $4.4 million seed round which will enable them to launch the internet fast lane for games. We agree with Network Next’s view that the internet is broken for games and has been optimized to deliver static and streaming content, not interactive, real-time applications like online multiplayer games. Game traffic is real-time, interactive, and much more demanding on the network.
The gaming industry is dependent on reliable, consistent network connections. Playing at your best for gamers means playing on a stable network with low latency - and that's where game developers don’t find great solutions. Network Next makes it easier for developers to operate on the highest quality infrastructure and make sure that gamers get the fastest and most consistent experience. As gamers as well as industry supporters, we at BITKRAFT could not be more excited to invest in this team and technology.
Network Next partners with game developers to specify their performance requirements and uses their technology to find the fastest, most consistent route for each player, delivering an unparalleled gaming experience. Together, we are creating a new internet for games.
