On broadband forum Whirlpool, Hackett said that the backhaul connection used was being swamped during major games. The good news, he said, was that a large upgrade to the backhaul was being arranged.

Hackett's response came after one forum user — who said they had tried to access the service during a popular game — had difficulties getting access to the service.

The extent to which the service was being used positively surprised Hackett. "The gist though is simple — it's popular! And so we're upgrading it," Hackett told ZDNet Australia.
