Gaming Essentials - QoS

Play your best game with Vox! With Vox FTTH (Fibre to the Home) and the Vox-developed Gaming QoS (Quality of Service)* you can enjoy a gaming-optimised experience on your last mile.

We all know that a split second can mean the difference between winning and losing when competing online. Lag spikes and jitter are the bane of a gamer’s existence and cause major frustration for gamers of all levels. Vox FTTH gamers used to experience the same frustration, but not anymore.

With Vox Gaming QoS you will:

• Eliminate latency spikes
• Minimise jitter
• Be unaffected by other household Internet traffic.

Now it’s possible to experience smooth gaming, with lower pings and less lag, while the rest of your home can ‘Netflix and chill.’

*This offering is only available to Vox FTTH customers and requires a Vox-supplied MikroTik router to be enabled.

How It Works

Features And Benefits

  • Gaming Traffic Isolation

    Your gaming traffic will flow over a dedicated portion of your last mile link, unaffected by other Internet traffic flowing over the same link.

  • Eliminate Latency Spikes

    With gaming traffic isolation, you won't experience latency spikes when someone in the house starts watching a Youtube video, for example.

  • Minimise Jitter

    With reduced variance in latency, the jitter on your gaming traffic will be minimised. You and your family can enjoy hassle-free Internet usage without your gaming or their streaming being affected.

  • Reduce Ping Time

    Get the edge over the competition with improved real-time gaming, particularly on lower speed links.

  • OTA (Over the Air) Configuration

    Vox will configure your router remotely so you can enjoy the benefits without delay.

  • No Contract Lock-In

    Vox's Gaming Quality of Service can be purchased on a month-to-month contract.
