BT has announced a new partnership with Microsoft for the launch of their new Xbox next-gen consoles. The partnership will see BT Broadband and EE mobile customers receive access to the hotly anticipated new Xbox Series X | S consoles, subject to availability.
BT provides Full Fibre, the UK’s most reliable fibre technology, which is the perfect accompaniment for gamers wanting the best online experience. With lightning fast speeds, the lowest latency and unbeatable jitter, it promises an exceptional online experience on Xbox Series X | S, helping to deliver an edge over other gamers during those clutch moments, when quick responses are crucial and every millisecond counts. BT’s Superfast Fibre and Full Fibre broadband packages also come with no download limits as well as a Stay Fast Guarantee, meaning customers will always get the speeds promises, or their money back.
Meanwhile, independent testing by RootMetrics found EE’s 5G network to be the no.1 in the UK, offering 5G in more places than any other UK network. According to the tests, EE’s 5G offers the best combination of fast speeds and coverage – perfect for gaming on the go.
The move will see BT broadband customers offered the chance to purchase the Xbox Series X | S, plus a range of games and accessories, through their MyBT account. Existing EE pay monthly mobile customers will also have the option to take out one of the consoles and add the cost to their price plan, split over 11 interest-free instalments with EE’s Add to Plan service.
Alistair Wilson, Director of Devices and Partnerships, BT’s Consumer Division, said:
“In the world of online gaming a win or loss can be measured in milliseconds, as a result, gamers stand to benefit from the ultra responsive, super-fast connectivity that BT fibre and EE’s 5G service gives them. By working with console manufacturers such as Microsoft, we’re helping support gamers so they can ensure they’re getting the very most from their gaming experience”.
Offering BT and EE customers the opportunity to purchase Xbox Series X | S, plus a range of games and accessories is part of BT’s ongoing commitment to bring the best gaming experiences to customers. BT is working with some of the most innovative companies in the world to offer the latest choice and smartest devices to customers and also earlier this year announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement with UK-based esports team Excel Esports.
