Three bits of last mile connectivity news to start the week:
Comcast Business is taking note of the growing pickleball phenomenon. They are bringing connectivity to Pints & Paddle, an indoor sports bar and pickleball court combo in Maple Grove MN. The recently built location is using Comcast Business’s internet, voice, and television services as part of a technology-driven business. If you don’t know what pickleball is, that’s more court time for me.
Ritter Communications is finishing up a project in the Arkansas towns of Walnut Ridge and Hoxie. The regional service provider will be turning up a $1.8M expansion in the area an hour and a half northwest of Memphis. Ritter has been quite busy expanding its FTTH footprint in towns in and around its Arkansas home turf.
And SiFi Networks has officially kicked off the construction of its buildout in Oceanside, California. The goal is to pass some 70,000 homes with 10Gbps connectivity at a cost of as much as $120M. The city is about an hour north of San Diego along the coast, and is one of several dozen locations SiFi is expanding its footprint within.
