Internet service provider (ISP) Claranet has launched a new 40Mb fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband deal aimed at online gaming fans.

The super-fast broadband packages have been introduced to coincide with a revamp of the firm's small business and home working division, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

Claranet's Optimal 2Mb FTTC service – which is described as being "very good" for gaming – is priced at £36 per month.

Subscribers can take advantage of up to 40Mb downstream speeds, with a minimum of 8Mb at peak times, while they have a choice of either 2Mb or 10Mb upstream speeds.

As well as unlimited downloads, a free installation is included as part of the broadband deal, while subscribers also receive a free 'N' class wireless router.

Claranet director Jason Keen said that before switching to FTTC broadband, he would be constantly banging his head against the wall when playing online.

He added: "The lag would often cause my game to stall, resulting in my untimely death! Since moving to fibre, I can happily play online, even when my wife and son are using the internet."
