A Jonesboro-based broadband provider said it has made a $16 million investment to provide new communications technology in Texarkana.

Ritter Communications said in a press release that it invested $12 million in a transport route along Interstate 30 to get fiber service to Texarkana and another $4 million to build out the business service in the market. It is providing high-speed, 100 percent fiber internet, voice, cloud solutions, networking and television services.

Ritter Communications is the first provider in the Texarkana market to offer XGS-PON service, which delivers up to 10 gigabits per second of 100 percent fiber connectivity to users.

Ritter Communications began construction to serve Texarkana’s major business corridors earlier this year. The high-speed services will be available to business customers in zones beginning in July.
