Pentanet.GG roars into Australian esports
For the past six months, rumours have been coming out of Perth that a new esports platform is on its way for Australian gamers. Today the team are proud to officially confirm those rumours.
Tonight, Pentanet.GG roared into the Australian esports spotlight across the chest of the Perth Wildcats.
As the new esports arm of Perth’s own internet service provider, Pentanet, Pentanet.GG has been created with a focus on building a professionally regulated esports industry that connects Asia with Australia, backed by the power of the Perth ISP delivering superfast internet speeds with gamers and esports fans front of mind.
Delivering Pentanet.GG's vision as its General Manager is Pete Curulli, who has spent three years building Game On AUS, a powerhouse of games media across the country.
Mr. Curulli said he was surprised to get the call from Pentanet Managing Director Stephen Cornish a few months back, but within one meeting he knew it was the right fit.
“I was squarely focused on esports and gaming entertainment at the time, however when Stephen shared his vision with me, I saw how this could be a real benefit to the Australian esports scene,” said Mr. Curulli.
“For all of its maturity, the Australian esports market is still young. There's so much good that is being done, and Pentanet’s dedication to bring its network and professional processes to the passion that players and viewers have for esports gives the market an incredible opportunity to protect and nurture the scene.”
As an avid gamer himself, Mr. Cornish said t's always been at the heart of Pentanet to build the best network possible for fellow gamers, and subsequently all of Perth.
“Our city has always been disadvantaged when it came to competitive gaming online, with the servers usually located in Asia or over east,” he explained.
“Given Perth is the gateway exactly between Asia and the Eastern states, we recognise the opportunity as gamers to expand our network to these regions, turning Perth into the new centre of an Australasian esports network, whilst also operating the league that runs through it. We look forward to cultivating and elevating the next best gaming talent from here in WA, providing the right mentorship and guidance in how to conduct themselves as professional athletes."
Pentanet proudly power the Perth Wildcats and Perth Lynx, and are excited to extend the coverage to include national exposure for Pentanet.GG on the team’s away jerseys. The logo was seen for the first time when the Perth Wildcats took on the Brisbane Bullets tonight at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
