i3D.net is a Dutch low-latency hosting provider specialized in the online videogaming niche, serving millions of gamers worldwide on a daily basis, not just for PC but also for consoles such as Playstation or Xbox. Rather than doing business with individual end users, i3D.net typically deals directly with the publishers of the game, giving them greater leverage in fostering a community in new regions since it'll be backed by the studio's and publisher's marketing efforts. To be able to offer a low-latency experience for the end users, they operate a global low-latency backbone with traffic originating in Europe, North America, South America, the Asia-Pacific, Oceania, Africa and the Middle-East. I3D.net also owns two carrier-neutral datacenters in The Netherlands, where the company is headquartered.
