Jonesboro-based telecommunications service provider Ritter Communications will invest $5.4 million in infrastructure to bring its fiber-to-the-home internet service RightFiber to Rogers and Lowell neighborhoods.

RightFiber provides high-speed internet, TV and phone to serviceable homes with speeds up to 5 gigs.

“Ritter Communications has served the Rogers-Lowell business community with the most advanced fiber internet services for the past three years,” CEO Heath Simpson said in a news release. “We are excited to increase our dedication to the area by bringing Rogers and Lowell residents our RightFiber broadband service. We are committed to providing our customers with the high-quality internet and world-class customer service we’re known for.”

A timetable for the project was not released, nor was the number of potential customers impacted. RightFiber’s initial construction areas will be notified when services are available through door tags, mail, yard signs, and door-to-door team members. Residents can check availability at RightFiber.com.

“High-speed broadband at home is a necessity in today’s digital world,” Rogers Mayor Greg Hines said. “Ritter Communications investment brings our citizens another option for at-home internet that fits their needs.”

Ritter Communications launched its RightFiber-branded residential fiber offerings in 2021 throughout the Mid-South. The company completed its expansion into Centerton in September 2023 and will announce an additional Northwest Arkansas expansion in the upcoming months.

“I am deeply appreciative of the investment Ritter Communications has made in our community,” Lowell Mayor Chris Moore said. “This project will bring Lowell residents a high-quality broadband service with improved connectivity.”
