MWEB Gives South Africans A Local Dota 2 Server
It’s done. The thing that fans have been waiting for is done.
MWEB has launched local Dota 2 servers for testing, in co-operation with Valve. MWEB is currently awaiting confirmation from Valve as to when the servers can go into full build, which could be anytime from now.

As soon as that happens, South Africa will be added to the game under the server settings.
Dota 2 internationally is insanely large, and it’s still in beta. We’ve started coverage of local content–which you can read here. All of this is very exciting and it makes MWEB’s future in the game a lot more promising. Local Dota 2 is growing at a rapid pace, too.
“This is another level reached in our ongoing mission to improve the online gaming experience for local players,” says Desmond Kurz, Online Gaming Manager at MWEB. “Local Dota 2 players will now have the opportunity to create new play strategies that are not apparent at the high pings that they are used to playing with on EU and US servers.”
Fans of the game know what this will include. They can finally play without having to worry about a ~200ms ping. Users on MWEB will feel slightly better performance than those with other ISPs.
