As restrictions eased, the pair made the leap and moved in together, bringing with them a multiplayer friendship circle from across the world.
With local broadband download speeds averaging around 67Mbps, their connection in Carmarthen was just not giving them the competitive edge they needed. Regularly gaming around the house, Cerys upstairs and as far as you can be from the router, and Jake in the living room, both found the connection dropped frequently, causing frustration during those curtail game play moments.
“Downloads and updates would take hours. In the little time we have together, we want to spend it gaming with our friends, not waiting for updates to install.”
With a new baby on the way, the pair thought it might be game over for their multiplayer lives, accepting their slow speeds as a sign.
“Having a new-born was a big adjustment and our lives took on a whole new level of busy. We started using our tech to help with timers for cooking or playing lullabies for baby Faye.”
The added pressure on their connection as baby Faye arrived took the pair to their wits end – and that’s where destiny Ogi come in.
“We got a knock on the door from Ogi – quite literally just at the right time. They asked if we wanted to trial its full fibre broadband service and we leapt at the chance.”
