Verizon launches free online gaming service

ISP Verizon has announced the launch of a free service allowing online gamers to meet and compete, as it attempts to boost its broadband profile.

The PlayLinc system will act as a hosting service for several popular online games, including Counter-Strike, Unreal Tournament 2004, Battlefield 2 and America's Army.

US gamers who now pay as much as $100 a month to rent game servers from hosting companies can instead run these multi-player games for free.

Verizon has stated that PlayLinc is open to gamers worldwide, even if they don't subscribe to its broadband services.

The PlayLinc service, which debuted on 28 August, comes with software that will display advertising on the user's computer before and after a game is played, with revenue from the ads offsetting the cost of providing free game servers.
