Gaming Essentials - QoS
Play your best game with Vox! With Vox FTTH (Fibre to the Home) and the Vox-developed Gaming QoS (Quality of Service)* you can enjoy a gaming-optimised experience on your last mile.
We all know that a split second can mean the difference between winning and losing when competing online. Lag spikes and jitter are the bane of a gamer’s existence and cause major frustration for gamers of all levels. Vox FTTH gamers used to experience the same frustration, but not anymore.
With Vox Gaming QoS you will:
• Eliminate latency spikes
• Minimise jitter
• Be unaffected by other household Internet traffic.
Now it’s possible to experience smooth gaming, with lower pings and less lag, while the rest of your home can ‘Netflix and chill.’
*This offering is only available to Vox FTTH customers and requires a Vox-supplied MikroTik router to be enabled.
How It Works
They need their independence, and you need peace of mind – get the best of both, with Vox I.C.E.
