Ritter Communications is the new name for Millington Telephone Co., Millington CATV, Inc. and Millington Alarms, Inc. and company officials say west Tennessee customers can expect new services in the coming months.
“Ritter Communications is excited to formally say ‘Hello’ to our west Tennessee customers and communities,” said CEO Chip Dickinson. “The name change is now official. We are now one company with one name,” he said. “Ritter Communications is here to stay and provide superior service to our customers and communities.”
The companies formerly owned and operated by the Howard family were acquired in December 2012 by Ritter Communications, a provider of advanced telecommunications services and broadband technologies to business and residential customers in northeast and north central Arkansas.
“Consolidating everything under the Ritter name paves the way for new offerings like bundles with all services bearing a consistent logo,” Gregg Smith, CFO and Transition Team Leader said. “In the fall, customers can look forward to faster Internet speeds, more channel options, unlimited long distance, advanced business solutions and bundled services. It’s a great time to be a Ritter Communications customer.”
All employees are now located at 4880 Navy Road in Millington and 1464 Munford Avenue in Munford, making it convenient for customers to order new service, get help with existing service or simply pay their bill.
“Whether a customer wants high speed Internet, cable TV, telephone service, a security system or advanced business solutions,” said Smith, “he or she will call one company with one name: Ritter Communications.”
“Our business is connecting people. As a family-owned business, Ritter Communications is proud to build on the heritage established by the Howard family,” he said. “We look forward to making Ritter Communications the recognized name in west Tennessee for providing the highest quality services and the best customer care all around our core ‘Right By You’ values.”
Ritter Communications, founded in Marked Tree, Arkansas and headquartered in Jonesboro, began providing local phone service in 1906. Today, Ritter serves 57 communities and more than 40,000 customers in northeast and north central Arkansas and west Tennessee with advanced voice and data services typically found only in major metropolitan areas.
Ritter invests heavily in the communities it serves by deploying proven, best in class infrastructure and technology while coupling it with a world class customer focused experience.
