Smoothping is a gaming site made for gamers by gamers. Our goal to bring you the lowest World of Warcraft Ping possible using a process known as SSH Tunnelling.
How it Started
Having found a legitimate way to reduce latency in World of Warcraft, we decided we needed to introduce a quality service that every WoW gamer could use. We set up our first server and invited players from our guild to beta test the service. The results spoke for themselves - everyone in our guild got a significantly lower ping, reduced disconnects and generally had a better play experience, even though the bulk of the testers were Americans and already had good Ping times! 3 new servers were added - Netherlands, Boston and Dallas, we went live, demand was huge, and we've been growing ever since.
Who we are
Paul is the creator of Smoothping and is the "brains" behind the business. He is an old school gamer, having played MMORPGs way back in the Ultima Online (UO) days through to EQ, Horizons, SWG, Eve, EQ2, AoC, etc. Of course, his one true love is World of Warcraft. Paul is Australian and has lived all over the World.
Elisabeth is the "beauty" behind the business and is actually Paul's one true love (*cough*). She has always been a really good gamer, earning the reputation as the best Cleric (healer) on her EQ server in the days of vanilla EQ! She plays a mean Hunter and often topped the DPS charts in our guild. (Not bad considering the guild we played in was a server first progression raiding guild!). Elisabeth is Swedish and proud of it!
Art is our server God and takes care of all of our technical issues, including adding new servers when the demand is there, troubleshooting issues, etc. Art is a native Russian (from Vladivostok!) and his English skills are quite remarkable.
