The Windows 10 application will be available to Optus NBN customers for a fee of $10 from 6 October onwards.
In a statement, Optus said it had carried out research, conducted by WPP with 1000 people, that showed more than half the hardcore gamers surveyed said lag was the main pain-point.
Optus vice-president for TV, Content & Product Development, Clive Dickens, said: "Optus is already ranked as #1 for NBN download speeds by the ACCC for the last four quarters.
Optus Game Path brand ambassador, Laymen Gaming, said: ‘If you're playing games online, the very last thing you ever want to experience is lag. There's nothing more frustrating than your KD dropping due to packet loss, or your raid leader replacing you because your connection just can't keep up.
"Having a strong, reliable Internet connection is just as important as having the latest graphics card or next gen console, which is why we use Optus. Game Path means we never need to worry about our internet giving out at crucial moments. We can just play, win, repeat.”
Optus’ Queen St flagship store in Brisbane has just opened a state-of-the-art gaming centre which doubles as an avenue to showcase Game Path in action, as well as being the home of Optus’ recent eSports signing, The Chiefs team, where they will conduct training and streaming.
