KPN connects Go!Gaming with fiber for the best gaming experience
First class gaming in Pathé cinemas throughout the Netherlands
To reward gamers with the ultimate gaming experience, KPN connects all Go!Gaming locations with First Class Internet using fiber. Go!Gaming connected by KPN, ensures that gamers who don’t yet have a fiber connection in their own home can enjoy the best gaming experience at a nearby location. Various Pathé cinemas have Go!Gaming state-of-the art centers where gamers and their friends can enjoy the ultimate gaming experience via KPN’s fast and stable fiber network.
Go!Gaming is a collaboration between Pathé and H20 Esports Campus, bringing gamers, e-sporters and Pathé visitors together to discover the pleasure and excitement of gaming. The first such location was launched in December 2021 in Rotterdam. Other locations have since been added in Utrecht, Groningen, and Maastricht. Globally, gaming is the fastest growing sector of the entertainment market and an ever-increasing number of games are supported via the cloud. It means that gamers are increasingly demanding high quality network connections, at home and at nearby locations, whether via 5G or KPN’s fast and stable network.
Matthijs Vink, Co-Founder and CCO of Go!Gaming: “In KPN we found the perfect partner to increase awareness of Go!Gaming amongst a broad target group of gamers and others interested in gaming. Dedicated gamers know the importance of a stable, high-quality connection, which makes KPN’s fiber network indispensable for the best gaming experience. We are incredibly proud that KPN has had the confidence to make this investment. It gives us the confidence that a further step has been taken to establish a brilliant, successful concept in the Netherlands. We will join with KPN to bring gamers together in person, and connect them."
KPN, the provider for gamers throughout the Netherlands
KPN is currently focused on connecting everyone in the Netherlands through a sustainable, fast and stable fiber network. “It’s happening at lightning speed”, says Robin Clements, EVP Marketing and Products at KPN. “Nevertheless, some gamers will have to wait a little while longer to benefit from First Class internet in their own homes, with symmetrical speeds. Thanks to Go!Gaming connected by KPN they can spend time in a great environment discovering what it means to be able to game on the network in the Netherlands.” As chief sponsor of the eDivisie and launching partner of E-Oranje, KPN has enjoyed a long-term relationship with gamers in the Netherlands.
