    Bloody Yanks!

    They'd charge for the air you breath if they were allowed to.

    Soooo, it's literally just a service between you and your router? I don't get how this isn't a "fast/priority" lane if it is causing prioritisation in the ISP

    Make the service worse and worse over time and then sell the normal service you would expect from an ISP for a premium... GENIUS!

    So from I can read it's just a fancy name for some QoS software...

    From what i can make out it's basically a VPN to servers / locations that are 'tuned' to prioritise game traffic and probably have fatter pipes.

    The only time i can see it being useful is if you wanted to game on servers that are halfway across the world as theoretically you'll have less hops.
