About OneQode

OneQode is a digital infrastructure company known for its high-performance cloud platform and low-latency network, crafted to meet the rigorous demands of real-time applications and competitive gaming. In a groundbreaking move for the region, OneQode established APAC Central, a central server region strategically positioned on Guam to serve the entire Asia-Pacific region. This latency-neutral location levels the playing field for cross-regional gaming, real-time services, and business applications.

Dissatisfied with the speed and reliability of existing networks in the Asia-Pacific, OneQode built its own global carrier network to eliminate lag. By using state-of-the-art technology to send data faster via submarine cables, the company ensures smoother gaming and app performance.

Originally conceived as a wireless last-mile internet provider for gamers, OneQode’s mission evolved into creating a global network capable of delivering superior internet service beyond their borders. Despite challenges posed by existing internet infrastructure, OneQode remained committed to offering better internet connectivity specifically for gamers.

Recognizing that traditional carriers prioritize cost over quality, often neglecting latency and network congestion, OneQode took matters into its own hands. The company realized that to provide the best possible gaming experience, it had to control the entire network chain. Thus, it built a global carrier network from the ground up to tackle common connectivity issues like congestion and slow speeds.

Ultimately, OneQode’s innovative infrastructure and commitment to excellence reflect its foundational belief: gamers should have access to high-quality, low-latency internet that makes competitive gaming and real-time applications not just possible, but exceptional.
