Ritter Communications announced Monday (Oct. 24) a $5.5 million expansion project to bring its telecom service and cloud solutions to residential and business customers in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. This is the company’s first expansion project in the Show Me State.
“High-quality telecom services are essential to organizations of all sizes and all industries,” said Ritter Communications CEO Alan Morse.“Ritter Communications services and solutions are tools organizations need to not only support their day-to-day operations but to thrive and serve their communities. We are excited to bring our best-in-class fiber service to Missouri and proud to start in Cape Girardeau.”
Ritter Communications is the first to bring XGS-PON technology to the Cape Girardeau area. This technology uses 100% fiber connectivity to power the company’s full suite of broadband solutions and telecom services with speeds up to 100 gigabits per second.
“High-quality telecom services are necessary to keep and attract businesses in today’s world and economy,” said Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rob Gilligan. “We’re grateful that Ritter Communications is investing in our rural community and bringing established and future organizations in Cape Girardeau the ability to access services they need to better serve our community.”
Construction of this expansion project began in April 2022, and customers will start receiving Ritter Communications telecom services by late October.
