Ritter Communications is expanding its fiber services to Newport. This $2.6 million expansion project will be paid for by Ritter.

“Ritter Communications is excited to bring our industry-leading 100% fiber telecom services to the residents of Newport,” said Ritter Communications CEO Alan Morse. “Our offer of the highest quality services is a point of pride for us at Ritter Communications and we are eager to share it with our rural communities throughout the Mid-South to further bridge the digital divide.”

Construction on the Newport expansion project is projected to start mid-April. Other expansion projects are underway across Arkansas, many funded by grants awarded through the Arkansas Rural Connect program.

The continued growth of Ritter Communications infrastructure gives more communities access to the company’s RightFiber symmetrical one gigabit speed. RightFiber is a new residential FTTH (Fiber to the Home) service by Ritter Communications, using 100% fiber technology to deliver high-quality internet, TV and phone at the fastest gigabit speeds available.

“As a forward-looking company, we continue to manage our ongoing and accelerating expansion with the future in mind,” said Jeff Chapman, RightFiber General Manager. “We describe our high-quality 100% fiber network services as being ‘future-proof,’ as they are being adaptably built to meet our customers’ growing telecom needs as they change over time.”
