Virgin Media Business connects Ryder Cup venue to fast broadband
Virgin Media Business has connected 2010 Ryder Cup venue the Celtic Manor Resort to a fibre optic broadband network to aid press coverage of the event.

The clash between Europe and the US runs between October 1st and 3rd, with more than 1,000 journalists and photographers set to attend in order to bring news of the contest to sports fans across the world.

According to Virgin Media Business, the 100Mb/s fibre optic cable circuit it has installed means the venue can be confident that writers will be able to file their work on time.

"To ensure that the world's media can meet their deadlines and deliver an up-to-the-minute account of what's happening, we need a lightning speed and resilient fibre optic network," remarked Celtic Manor Resort's vice president of facilities and development Russell Philips.

In July, Sky confirmed the Ryder Cup will be one of the highlights of the launch weekend of Europe's first ever residential 3D TV channel, Sky 3D.
