Akado launches cloud streaming game service

Russian service provider Akado has launched its planned cloud gaming streaming service in test mode.

The service, GFN.RU, a gaming offering provided by the SAFMAR industrial conglomerate, enables Akado subscribers to play a range of popular games on a range of devices, including Android-based mobile handsets.

The first 1,000 customers to sign up will receive a promotional code giving them discounted access for one month.

Akado said that GFN.RU will offer more than 600 games from a list that is updated daily. Customers will need access to internet speeds of 25Mbps or above to use the service, along with a 5GHz WiFi router and equipment that meets the system’s requirements.

“The gaming industry is an actively developing business that is becoming increasingly popular in Russia. For Akado, gaming has become one of our strategic focuses. We want to provide our customers with affordable gaming services – during the isolation period these are especially relevant. Cooperation with GFN will give our customers the opportunity to play the top games, and we will offer stable and reliable Iiternet,” said Vladimir Karpenko, director of strategic marketing and business development at Akado Telecom.

“The main goal of GFN.RU is the development of affordable gaming in the country. We want people to be able to play new games anywhere and on any device, without spending a lot of money on updating their computer or laptop. All that is needed is stable internet. We are glad that we were able to find a like-minded partner represented by Akado Telecom, which, thanks to its speed and stability, will help us to bring affordable gaming to the masses,” said Pavel Troitsky, executive director of GFN.RU.
