Ripple Fiber, a fiber optic internet provider based in the Southeast, is live on the Outer Banks, after a ceremony on the morning of Jan. 25 “turning on” fiber internet at the home of a Kitty Hawk resident.

As the first residents to receive fiber internet in the area, more than 4,500 residents in Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores are now able to utilize the innovative technology, with thousands more anticipated to have access by the end of 2024.

“The Outer Banks is an area that we are proud to be a part of, as we understand the community’s need for enhanced connectivity,” says Greg Wilson, CEO of Ripple Fiber. “Being chosen to introduce this technology has been a great honor, so witnessing the months of hard work and collaboration with local leaders materialize is amazing.”

Driving digital transformation across the world, fiber internet is a powerful solution that functions at the speed of light.
