CoastConnect has been selected as one of 30 pilot partners for the launch of Fiber Gaming Network (FGN), a nationwide gaming platform that connects fiber internet users across the country for weekly community game nights and tournaments.

FGN hosts a series of online gaming events every week featuring popular games such as Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Madden NFL 23, Brawlhalla, Fortnite, Rocket League, NBA2k23 and Valorant. Participating players must register beforehand and have the chance to win prizes every week.

According to a 2021 study, fiber internet is 10 times faster than cable and offers better latency, resulting in a smoother and more responsive online gaming experience.
