Mediacom Business provides internet service for PGA Tour Champion Tournament


Mediacom Business recently served as the official broadband provider for the Principal Charity Classic.

The company was once the official provider for the tournament, according to a press release.

The annual PGA Tour Champions took place at the Wakonda Club in Des Moines. The Principal Charity Classic was honored as the PGA Tour Champions Tournament of the Year in 2016 and raised $10 million in support of children charities in the Iowa area.

The communication services Mediacom provided were powered by the DOCSIS 3.1 Gigasphere platform.

“Using the Gigabit speeds from Mediacom Business allows the Principal Charity Classic event team to quickly transfer data from remote course sites back to their main office,” Dan Templin, senior vice president of Mediacom Business, said in a press release. “In addition, by placing 1 Gig enabled modems in the media center, locker rooms and family areas, we are able to offer a greatly enhanced technology experience to all the attendees.”

 The internet service allowed tournament spectators, players, sports writers and staff to access the internet in the facilities. 

“Throughout the tournament, it is critical to keep everyone from the spectators, reporters and broadcasters, to our own staff, connected with all of the action taking place across the course,” Greg Conrad, tournament director for the Principal Charity Classic, said. “This constant sharing of real-time information requires a significant amount of bandwidth, and we’re fortunate Mediacom Business can provide us with the high-capacity broadband services we need to make our event a success.”
