Pentanet Ltd (ASX: 5GG) is breaking new ground for Australia’s virtual gaming enthusiasts.

The recently listed ASX telco delivers high-speed internet with next-generation internet speeds.

Below, we take a look at the company’s latest update.

What did Pentanet report?

In an update this morning Pentanet announced it is commencing its Beta Program for GeForce NOW.

GeForce NOW is a cloud-based game streaming service offered by US-based tech giant, NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA)

Pentanet said its CloudGG portal’s scheduled launch of 7 pm AWST on 9 June marked the formal commencement of the first part of a three-stage rollout. The company expects to launch the service nationally in October.

According to the release, GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet “will provide Australian subscribers with a high-quality cloud gaming service to almost any device”. The service will enable users to instantly play any game across devices. The company said that previously only high-end gaming PCs were able to deliver a similar gaming experience.

Commenting on the first part of the rollout, Pentanet founder and managing director Stephen Cornish said:

A staged and scalable approach, which adds new testers and new users over time, will enable Pentanet to build a GeForce NOW service that will attract a wide variety of gaming customers through a positive user experience.

Pentanet’s commitment to provide Australia’s gaming community with a user experience that is currently only enjoyed by their international counterparts will allow the company to access an untapped market.

Aussie data centre provider Nextdc Ltd‘s (ASX: NXT), P2 Perth and S2 Sydney data centres will support the underlying infrastructure deployment.
