Valve upgrades to 100Gbps Internet for Steam gaming

Valve is upgrading its network infrastructure with 100Gbps Internet ports due to growth in the amount of traffic it handles.

According to a report by Ars Technica, Level 3 Communications handles Valve’s bandwidth needs – which largely stem from its PC gaming platform Steam.

Steam’s traffic is growing at 75% year-on-year, according to the report, handling between 450 to 500 petabytes (500,000TB) of data per month.

Steam has over 100 million users, and averages more than 10 million concurrent players per day.
