This year's i8 gaming party will be held at the Newbury racecourse from 24 August. The event will see gaming gods from all over the UK battle it out in masses of online sessions in the race to be 'ping king'.
The challengers, who signed up at the Blueyonder website, will witness some super low ping rates as they make use of the high-speed service.
"With broadband, gamers say goodbye to the latency which ruins the online experience," said Craig Fletcher, managing director of Multiplay, the event's host. "Their experience will be replaced with one which is super fast and permanently connected."
The party, the UK's biggest ever gaming extravaganza, will be powered by Telewest.
The action packed weekend will see gamers eating, sleeping and breathing their favourite games, such as Counter Strike, Quake and Unreal Tournament. The best of the bunch will get the chance to attend an exclusive Blueyonder party.
Multiplayer death matches are becoming increasingly popular and, with the video games industry being one of the biggest in the world, we could soon see online gaming joining books, theatre and film as one of the respected arts.
