Jonesboro-based Ritter Communications has spent $4 million to expand into Morrilton in the River Valley.
In addition to broadband connectivity, Ritter Communications will offer a full suite of telecommunications services, including voice, custom cloud solutions, networking and television services.
The Morrilton expansion project comes after a number of other recent rural expansions including Lonoke, Pine Bluff, Arkadelphia and Texarkana.
Ritter Communications is the first provider to offer XGS-PON service in Morrilton, which delivers access up to 10 gigabits per second of 100% fiber connectivity to business customers. A local customer support team assists users with all services, eliminating the need for third-party technical support.
“We’ve seen dramatic changes in the last year in the way businesses utilize the internet, meaning true 100% fiber internet has become less of a luxury and more of an operational necessity,” said Ritter Communications CEO Alan Morse.
“We see the demand for high-quality broadband in Morrilton, with 30 businesses ready to connect, and we look forward to expanding our 100% fiber internet services to more in the Morrilton business community. Ritter Communications will start turning up zones in May, and we are eager to bring the Morrilton community our advanced business solutions and superior customer service,” Morse added.
