LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2008 – As part of an overall effort to improve the internet service for the media at the 2008 PGA TOUR’s Northern Trust Open, Bel Air Internet was chosen to provide ultra high speed internet service for hundreds of reporters and photographers at the media center.
In previous years, media reporters at the tournament which is held at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, experienced difficulty submitting their stories by deadline via the DSL connection. The slow DSL speeds and interruption of service prompted both media and tournament organizers to look for an internet provider that could meet the high bandwidth needs of the media. “Bel Air Internet did a fantastic job for our tournament,” said Northern Trust Open Tournament Director, Tom Pulchinski. “We were totally satisfied with their entire operation from installation through to the great 100% uptime service.”
According to Terry Koosed, president of Bel Air Internet, “hundreds of reporters and media personnel were able to submit their stories, pictures and videos to their newsrooms with lightening speed during the entire weeklong tournament. We were thrilled to be part of this prestigious event.”
