So what kind of internet connection does the store have?

Time Warner Cable Business Class

You know, a lot of centers offer “Full T-1″ gaming. T-1′s are great, but they’re soooo 2001. We’ve got a mainline to Time Warner’s Packet Prioritized High Speed network, and it rocks.

What is Packet Prioritization, you may ask? Well, in a nutshell it means your gamerlicious data packets of death are more important than granny’s email as it speeds down the information Superhighway. If you’ve GOT to be the best in your next World of Warcraft jaunt to the Outlands, you have to feel our more than 2 Megabits of upstream data flow. Your game connection is no longer the bottleneck… only at TCS.
