When it comes to Black Ops II, console gamers will always have the convenient excuse of… “urgh, latency/lag”, but PC gamers? Well thanks to iiNet, folks playing Black Ops II online will to invent other excuses for poor performance. As a result of a previously successful partnership with for the original Black Ops, iiNet is now set to host Australia’s only dedicated Black Ops II servers through the company’s gaming portal

As someone who has suffered through terrible connections whilst playing Halo 4 on Xbox 360 I’d like to officially state for the record that I am ‘jelly’.

“ and are hoping to grow our relationship even further in the future so that we can continue to provide a better gaming experience for all Australians,” said Heidi Angove, iiNet Group’s Content Manager.

As of yesterday iiNet customers have quota-free access to the servers.


  • iiNet so cool. I miss being with them.

    Not that I ever made use of things like this or the unmetered Xbox Live stuff , but still it’s nice that it’s there.

    • What were you looking for? iiNet offers ADSL, ADSL2+, bonded DSL, mobile broadband, NBN fibre, satellite, dialup… they even sell digital picture frames, but you can’t play Black Ops 2 on those.

  • I’ve been with iinet since their humble beginings here on the east coast. Now that they are hosting BlackOps2 servers the deal just got sweeter.

    • iiNet has had a Steam mirror for years – any Steam games or updates downloaded from the iiNet mirrors counts as quota free traffic for iiNet and Internode customers. iiNet also host the Valve official L4D and L4D2 servers in Australia.

    • They have fast Steam servers and it’s unmetered too! (Internode user, but it’s the same deal these days – both owned by the same ppls)

  • Too bad the game has basically been unplayable since launch due to massive lag/stutter issues from insufficient infrastructure to host as many players playing as many games as they need.

    MASSIVE FAIL. The game seems great, but it’d be nice to know playing a non stuttery server.
