Ritter Communications expands fiber broadband to Newport, Arkansas

April 21, 2022
Ritter Communications on April 12 announced a $2.6 million private investment to expand fiber-optic internet services to Newport, Arkansas.

Ritter Communications, among the largest privately held telecommunications service providers in the mid-South U.S., on April 12 announced it is expanding its RightFiber services to Newport, Arkansas.

The $2.6 million expansion project is a self-funded investment by Ritter Communications to benefit the Newport community.

RightFiber is the provider's new residential fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) service, which leverages future-proof fiber-optic 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.”

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

“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.”
