Coventry Gamers Poised for Pole Position in National E-Gaming Championship

An online gaming community in Coventry is poised for success thanks to a new partnership with Coventry’s number one, ultrafast broadband provider, the award-winning Gigabit Networks – the Midlands’ Best ISP. 

The Coventry Crosshairs – an online community of gamers with links to Coventry College’s new E-Sports and Digital specialisms – was created by husband-and-wife gamers, Greg and Shoubna Naika Taylor.  Each week, the online group battles with other gaming groups from around the UK in the British E-Sports Student Championships, ahead of the national final, which will be held in June 2023.   

Shoubna Naika Taylor, co-founder of Coventry Crosshairs and Curriculum Manager at Coventry College, comments; “As every gamer knows, a stable, ultrafast and reliable broadband connection can be the difference between winning and losing in a quick-witted competitive environment like the E-sports Student Championships.  It’s why the Coventry Crosshairs team is officially backing Gigabit Networks, as they introduce their gigabit-fast connection to us, delivering speeds of up to 20x faster than normal internet connections.   

We all know there is a lot of tech power needed in computing – especially when running games online and competing in different cities – but also from a communications perspective internally, between team members.  Anything less than a lightning-fast connection can create delay and barriers at a time when cross-party communication is critical.  It can, literally, be the difference between success and failure, which is why we’re excited about the massively enhanced competitive edge that Gigabit Networks gives our gamers.”  

Gigabit Networks – recently voted Best Internet Service Provider in the Midlands – and partner, CityFibre, have invested over £70million in infrastructure in Coventry with the ambition of destroying the digital divide in the city. 

This next-generation internet infrastructure is not only more cost effective and eco-friendly, but also more reliable, promising a target 99.9% uptime and a cloud-ready service, opening up unlimited opportunities and capability for, not only the Coventry Crosshairs, but the wider city of Coventry, too. 

Co-founder of Gigabit Networks, David Yates comments; “The Digital and Gaming Economy is enormously important in Coventry.  Gigabit Networks is dedicated to providing gamers like the Coventry Crosshairs with a virtually limitless capacity when it comes to online gaming, streaming video, immersive media, and VR, as well as improved capabilities when working from home, cloud-based storage, and support.” 

He continues; “The people of Coventry, and the Midlands as a whole, deserve to be on an equal footing with other areas of the country.  As the ISP of the Midlands, we’re excited about our partnership with the Coventry Crosshairs, and hope that our new gigafast connection can help enhance their gaming prowess and promote them to pole position in the E-Sports championships and beyond.”
