Gary Anderson could yet play in PDC darts Home Tour line-up as internet providers line up to fix his dodgy WiFi – The Sun

GARY ANDERSON could yet play in the PDC "At Home" lockdown live event thanks to SunSport.

We exclusively revealed yesterday that The Flying Scotsman had to rule himself out of the online tournament, which started last night, due to weak WiFi.

But Ando, 49, has been swamped with internet providers trying to solve the issue so that he can play in the unique event this month.

His manager Tommy Gilmour said: “The response has been incredible. We’ve had so many calls to try and help with his internet including Virgin, Sky and BT.

“We are not sure what can be done but something might be able to be sorted.

“It’s not an excuse for not wanting to participate, it’s a genuine technical problem that he is unable to get an adequate service due to the rural location of his home.

“The PDC have been working on the project for a few weeks and have worked with Gary to see what can be done to have him take part.

“But like many rural dwellers Gary and his neighbours just do not get reliable signal strengths for internet or mobile phones.

“It was decided by all that it would be far more frustrating for players and fans to get patchy broadcast, freezing as Gary went for the winning shot!

“We have had numerous calls from internet providers and technical specialists this morning to see if they can help but it’s not something that can be solved straight away.

“We are having lots of laughs though that Gary and his WiFi are trending on Twitter.”
