Ritter Communications announced that the first Hot Springs customer to receive its state-of-the-art communications technology and advanced business services is Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort.
In February, the Jonesboro based company, announced a $7 million infrastructure investment to give Spa City businesses access to the highest speed, 100% fiber internet, voice, cloud solutions, networking and television services by late summer.
Ritter is the first to provide this XGS-PON service, a 100% fiber, ultra-high speed connection. The telecommunications technology uses signals that travel at the speed of light, providing a fast, reliable and secure connection.
“This $7 million project will yield major growth in Hot Springs businesses,” Alan Morse, president of Ritter Communications said. “We are proud to partner with the Spa City and power them through this exciting time of development. Our ultra-high speed connection will give Hot Springs businesses the competitive advantage they need and want.”
“This is an exciting time for Oaklawn with our casino expansion and hotel construction as well as the Hot Springs business community,” Ben Van Wagner, Director of IT of Oaklawn Jockey Club said. “Things are growing fast, and we need a connection with speed and agility to match.”
