Gaming Packages: A new trend in Nepal!
The Esports craze is gripping young enthusiasts and overall smartphone gaming is on a rising trend. So, it seems ISPs have realized the value of bringing a dedicated gaming package for gamers. Unlike a regular residential plan, a gaming internet package brings not just a high-speed package but also ensures low latency which is extremely vital for online gaming.
A gaming package with a WiFi 6 router would further elevate the user experience. The sixth-generation WiFi standard allows for up to 9.6 Gbps theoretical download speed. Additionally, 1024-QAM, high-speed bandwidth support, and the ability to support similar broadband speed across the connected devices make for a very satisfying online gaming experience.
WiFi 6 is available in Nepal and with ISPs launching a gaming package, they could soon become a favorite among the heavy internet users. For now, you can wait a few days till WorldLink announces its gaming internet packages.
Back in April 2022, WorldLink and PUBG reached a deal to enhance the gaming experience for Nepali online gamers. The latest internet plan aligns with that very agreement. Before that, they also cooperated in testing PUBG servers in Nepal.
