Award-winning voice, video, and high-speed Internet provider offers services for seventh consecutive year
Washington, D.C. – July 26, 2019 — RCN Business Solutions, an award-winning communications provider delivering network solutions for voice, data, and video, announced today that they will continue to serve as the exclusive and official telecommunications provider and sponsor for the 2019 Citi Open Tournament in Washington, D.C. This is the seventh consecutive year that RCN Business Solutions has served the tennis tournament and will again deliver fiber based high-speed Internet, hosted voice, and digital TV to the event being held at the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center between July 27 and August 4.
The Citi Open is one of the top 20 events on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour and benefits the Washington Tennis and Education Foundation (WTEF), a non-profit organization committed to providing powerful education and athletic programs to students from Washington’s inner city. 2019 competitors include Madison Keys, John Isner, Sloane Stephens, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Monica Puig with Coco Gauff, Tennis’ newest superstar, awaiting a spot in the qualifying round.
"We have a strong relationship with RCN, and they are a great partner,” said Dan Laufer, Director of Operations for Citi Open. “Executing large scale events is not easy and RCN has shown repeatedly that they can deliver -- on time and on budget. They are easy to work with and are responsive to our ever-changing needs. We look forward to our continued partnership."
As the official telecommunications provider, RCN Business Solutions will deliver direct Internet access, hosted voice and digital TV services, over their wholly-owned, locally managed, fiber network to staff, players, attendees and local and international TV broadcasters for the nine-day event. Fans will have access to high speed WiFi service and the ability to live-stream every match on Citi Open’s website.

Metro. “The collaboration demonstrates our commitment to providing ultra-reliable high-speed internet and award-winning services to customers and partners and further solidifies our position as a key member of the D.C. community.”
