Lowering game latency with WTFast tunneling
Now let’s take a look at a Non-Perfect Trip with an assortment of traffic congestion, weather and you guessed it: several scenic routes along the way (we like to refer to this as the mother-in-law trip).
Each white dot above represents a ‘hop’ in our trip and no longer will we reach NY in a a timely manner — but we’ll still reach it, just not on record time. The internet IP works much in the same way where traffic, weather and how many scenic routes are decided along the way. These routes, unfortunately, are unavoidable because guess what? You’re not the one driving the car down the superhighway; your ISP and the internet itself are the main drivers and you’re just the passenger.
There are, thankfully, ways to avoid the dreadful mother-in-law trip above: divorce being one method *cough*, but let’s keep it real here. Tunneling your IP address is the ultimate solution to reaching your destination faster, and that’s where WTFast.com comes in.
WTFast.com is a tunneling service: a way for you, the passenger, the IP address, to become the driver again by moving over to the drivers’ seat . . . . and kicking any extra passengers out of the car, too. With WTFast you can avoid the extra scenic routes and allow your connection to reach a server with less hops — thus lowering your ping/latency within your favorite game(s).
Below is the reality of how your network travels across the superhighway. In this image we start in Florida then head off to Texas, followed by Georgia and finally reach our destination at Virginia. While this is not an excessive trip, these pitstops (hops) can increase latency to the connecting server when not using a tunneling service such as WTFast.com – which will provide a more straight path with less hops to the destination server IP.
Now that we have a general understanding of how latency affects our games, let’s take a look at WTFast’s software and how it will give you the edge in your favorite games.
