    5¼ years ago by Adrian

    I am pleased to confirm we have peering with Blizzard, and are working on peering with Riot Games as well.

    The Blizzard peering includes IPv6, as they have just fixed their EU realms IPv6.

    Peering means we have a more direct route for traffic to and from our customers. We always have various fallbacks, but peering means the best connectivity for lowest latency in your games.

    We always take latency seriously on broadband lines, and this just adds an extra edge.

    Just a quick update, we are now peering with Riot Games over our LoNAP and LINX ports.
