Delivering the immersive experience that end users won't do without.

As online gaming and media technology develop rapidly, so do the expectations of the millions who are plugged into MMORPGs, MMOFPs, MMORTSs and media- intensive sites. The end goal is an entirely immersive experience – one uninterrupted by any latency or downtime caused by the infrastructure underpinning your games. That requires speed, reliability and proactive hosting support. Achieving this in-house can be complicated and cost-prohibitive. Using the wrong hosting provider can be disastrous.

Cogeco Peer 1 provides the solutions, speed and reliability that the most complex gaming titles and media sites demand, no matter what the deliverable is for your end users. We have proven it time and again by consulting with gaming studios and rich media sites, from alpha and beta to launch and expansion.

Behind our gaming and rich media experience is our unequalled infrastructure – especially our proprietary 10Gbps FastFiber Network™ – and the experts manning it. Our network carries nothing but our own hosting traffic, so your gamers aren’t fighting through telecommunications clutter. Our global fleet of world-class data centers (one certified by the Content Delivery and Security Association [CDSA]) and 19 points of presence (PoPs) mitigate lag time caused by distance.

On top of all of this, our 24/7 Network Operations Centre (NOC) team constantly routes and reroutes network data. So fast becomes even faster, reliable becomes more reliable, and your games and sites become the truly immersive experience you intended them to be.


Almost any hosting provider can claim to have hosted online games and media-driven sites. What you need is a provider that understands your vision and your end users’ expectations. One who can deliver a customized solution that evolves throughout your game’s or site’s lifetime.

Track Record of Gaming Successes

Cogeco Peer 1 has worked with the world’s largest game publisher to deliver its games to its customers under every circumstance; from game launches consuming over 1,000 servers, to expansion packs and upgrades resulting in massive traffic spikes, and even mobile games that exploded beyond expectations.

Our FastFiber Network™ and Global Infrastructure

Our wholly-owned global data centers and more than 50 points of presence (PoPs) are connected by our proprietary 10Gbps network, which is monitored relentlessly by experts in our Network Operations Center (NOC). It is not only fast, but also smart – proactively rerouting traffic to avoid the latencies, slow page loads and downtime that plague your competitors’ sites and applications.

CDSA (Content Delivery and Storage Association) Certified

We believe our Atlanta, Georgia data center to be the only hosting provider facility to meet the exacting standards of CDSA certification when it comes to the responsible delivery and storage of entertainment, software and information content.

Responsive Support from Desk to Data Center

We know that businesses like yours often require hyper-responsiveness, which we are more than capable of delivering. In 2010, we procured, configured and spun up 1,250 servers across data centers in the US and EMEA within 72 hours.
