A new Internet Service Provider (ISP) is making waves in Moore County following the opening of their first physical location in Pinehurst. 

Ripple Fiber, a fast growing fiber internet company based in the southeast, commemorated their new Pinehurst location and entry into the area with a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, Jan. 17, with company leaders and teammates joining with the community to celebrate. 

The newest Ripple Fiber office, located at 7647 NC 211 Highway, Suite A, between Pinehurst and West End, is currently the only one planned for Moore County and will service what is recognized as the “Pinehurst market” which includes both Pinehurst and Southern Pines with discussions about expanding into West End, Carthage and Whispering Pines still ongoing. 

“We’ve been open for the last three months at this location, this office has been open, but officially, we want to make sure everyone knows that we're here and we're on the market. Anybody that has any needs can come into our office and we’ll answer any questions,” shared Regional Executive for Pinehurst Market Kylar Martin. “We’re a local presence, we’re here in the market, we are out there during construction. We want to ensure that everybody knows that they have a voice and that they have somebody to go to that’s in the community.”

According to Vice President of Franchising Bill Grogan, Ripple Fiber will be able to support around 60-70,000 users out of this single location. 

“We do analytics that show where communities are underserviced for connectivity and that was our attraction; your [Moore County’s] population density along with the fact that candidly, you needed some technology. So it makes a great fit,” shared Grogan.

A new resource for businesses and residents alike, many residents within the greater Pinehurst area will soon have access to innovative technology. “We offer full gig service fiber to the home, so it’s fiber directly to the back of the modem. There’s no coax whatsoever in our product and it's a one gig service with 1000 megabytes per second upload and download symmetrical speeds,” shared Martin. 

Driving digital transformation across the world, fiber internet is a powerful solution that functions at the speed of light. It transmits data through light pulses and is less susceptible to outside interference, making the fiber optic connections uniquely durable and strong.

Ripple Fiber provides thousands of homes with lightning-fast connectivity through the utilization of its fiber optic network and patented software. Its team is dedicated to expanding access and constructing strong infrastructures in communities nationwide.

With Ripple Fiber’s future-focused approach, residents of Moore County will have access to an infrastructure that will power the area for decades to come.

“As part of this community, we look forward to expanding access for local residents and improving their everyday lives,” added Martin. “Not only is Ripple Fiber committed to investing in the area’s infrastructure, but we will also invest in community partners and organizations that are valuable to our future customers to help build a brighter tomorrow.”
