Golfers to get their own broadband

Pitch and punt

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Thousands of golfers in the UK are to get their own tailor-made broadband service.

The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) has hooked up with Viatel as part of a three-year deal to supply golf pros and players with high speed net access.

Available from the middle of next month, PGA Broadband will also supply golf-related content such as videos and news.

Pricing for the PGA service has yet to be confirmed but if it follows the pattern of other products offered by Viatel, golfers are unlikely to get much change out of £30 a month.

This isn't the first time Viatel has teamed up with a sports group to flog its broadband. It also has deals in place with soccer clubs including Man U, Chelsea, Hibs, Hearts and Motherwell. ®
