After the successful launch of GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet, we are proud to share plans to dramatically expand our cloud-based infrastructure across Australia.

On 1 April 2022, Pentanet commenced negotiations with the Australian Government to purchase every single cloud within Australian airspace.

By harnessing the power of atmospheric condensation, Pentanet will be able to deliver cloud-based gaming experiences from right above our subscriber’s homes, eradicating nearly all latency for gamers across the country.

In much the same way that Pentanet engineered our neXus mesh network to overcome the line of sight requirements of traditional fixed wireless technology, we are also in the process of engineering state of the art cloud infrastructure to overcome the physical speed limitations of internet data that is transmitted overseas.

Australia is currently connected to the world wide web by huge subsea fibre cables. While these chonky cables have served us well, the pesky laws of physics mean that they are incapable of transmitting data at lightspeed.

You know what can transmit data at lightspeed? Lightning.

If Pentanet and the government are able to reach an agreement that allows us to make use of Australia’s combined cloud mass, the company has promised to create the Ultimate Gigacloud in the very centre of the country that beams data across the globe at literal lightning-fast speeds.

When asked how excited he was about Project Gigacloud, Pentanet Founder and Managing Director Stephen Cornish jokingly said, ‘What are you talking about? This better not be one of your [brilliant] ideas.’

He’s not one to brag, but it was clear from the look in his eyes that he was fully supportive of the idea and couldn’t wait to sink his teeth into the complexities of delivering the project.
