  • PANGAEA Internet
TRYON, NC — PANGAEA Internet, a commercial provider of fiber optic internet service for Polk and Rutherford counties, has been selected as the primary internet services provider for the FEI World Equestrian Games, which will be held Sept. 11-23, 2018 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Tryon, N.C.

“We are thrilled to play such an important role in the World Equestrian Games,” said Ron Walters, executive director of PANGAEA Internet. “The games will bring unmatched excitement and opportunity to our area and will showcase the region to worldwide visitors.”

Small Town Prepares for Big Event
The FEI World Equestrian Games, held every four years in the middle of the Olympic cycle, is one of the largest events on the global sporting calendar, combining eight equestrian World Championship-caliber events in one location. This year’s competition marks the eighth edition of the games and the second time they have been held in North America. The event has the potential to be the largest sporting event in North Carolina history — with a projected economic impact of $400 million, 500,000 spectators across 13 days and more than 70 countries represented.

Tenfold Increase in Network Capacity
PANGAEA is the primary internet services provider for this year’s venue, the Tryon International Equestrian Center. For the past 12 months, PANGAEA has conducted an extensive network upgrade in order to meet the event’s expected internet demands. “In preparation for the bandwidth demand of the games, PANGAEA has increased our network capacity by a factor of 10 for the month of September,” said Ken Griffin, PANGAEA Internet’s operations director.
