The UK's broadband network has stood up to the challenge posed by the release of the eagerly-anticipated Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 game, it has been claimed.

Concerns had been raised in the run-up to this week's launch that huge volumes of gamer traffic could lead to connection problems and potentially outages.

However, few if any problems have been experienced, the site said.

The latest Call of Duty release – which is available to web players via the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - is expected to become the biggest selling computer game in history.

Techwatch stated: "Online gaming is huge, but the user requires a decent connection to fully enjoy the game without experiencing any lag.

"Yet it seems the broadband network stayed intact and most of the UK's gamers are going around with a huge smile on their faces."

A first-person shooter game, the original Call of Duty was released in 2003.
