Kelowna, BC, Canada, November 1st, 2017 — wtfast, the SaaS application that eliminates lag by optimizing game traffic through the world’s largest gamers private network, announced today a partnership with Taiwan’s #1 internet service provider Chunghwa Telecom (HiNet.) Starting this month, wtfast will provide HiNet subscribers in Taiwan with its patented solution for reducing lag and smoothing connections to popular game servers.

Founded in 2009 and active in more than 100 countries, wtfast is designed exclusively to provide a more direct connection to servers for the most latency-sensitive applications: massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs). With four patents granted and partners including ASUS, MSI, Linksys and Gigabyte, wtfast protects against packet loss and improves ping times, saving seconds, which can mean the difference between winning and losing in the gaming world.

With a population of 12.8 million gamers, Taiwan is the 15th largest games market in the world. The HiNet Gaming Booster bundle will incorporate wtfast’s premium game network optimization tool into the HiNet suite of value-added internet services.

“We are very excited to bundle wtfast with HiNet’s game booster service to support the large gaming population in Taiwan. We are expecting the service to increase our subscribers and improve our customer loyalty,” said Eric Chie of HiNet.

“We are honored to be working with the team at Chunghwa Telecom to bring our technology to HiNet customers,” said Rob Bartlett, CEO of wtfast. “With the wtfast/HiNet Game Booster service, we give gamers the competitive edge, with upwards of a 60% overall network improvement. This gives gamers a much smoother connection and reduced ping time to their favorite game servers, which can mean the difference between winning and losing their game!”

wtfast will exhibit and attend the Telecom Council’s flagship TC3 event in Mountain View, CA from November 1–2, 2017. The wtfast team will be available for interviews and meetings at their booth at TC3.
