  • C Spire

STARKVILLE, MS — Parts of Oktibbeha County near Starkville will soon be home to C Spire's residential fiber program, including gigabit speed internet access, live streaming TV and premium digital home phone. C Spire Home Services, the unit that manages the company's residential fiber program, has either installed or is planning to soon install the game-changing infrastructure in more than 800 homes in neighborhoods and subdivisions located in the unincorporated area around Starkville, home to Mississippi State University.

"Residential fiber is a game-changer and this revolutionary technology promises to boost home values, broaden entertainment opportunities, help expand the local economy and improve the quality of life for everyone in Oktibbeha County," said Ashley Phillips, general manager of C Spire Home Services.

The first customers to receive the services not only will experience a quantum leap in broadband internet speeds and capacity, but also get access to digital home phone service and an app-based, live streaming digital commercial TV service honored by the cable TV industry in 2017 as the best television technology product in the U.S.

Advanced Cable TV Services
C Spire TV delivers advanced cable TV features in convenient and simple apps that are designed to run on popular streaming devices, such as Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and Apple TV – eliminating the need to outfit every TV in the home with a set top box and saving several hundred dollars a year in rental fees.

The Oktibbeha County residential fiber program is leveraging new infrastructure additions along Poor House Road, South Montgomery, Atkinson Drive and South Ridge Road to C Spire's over 9,000 route miles of backbone fiber optic cable that spans the state. 

Fiber Broadband Raises Home Values
Recent nationwide studies have concluded that gigabit speed fiber-optic connections like those provided by C Spire Home Services can add $5,437 (3.1 percent) to the price of a $175,000 home – about as much as a fireplace, or half the value of a bathroom.

With the addition of Oktibbeha County, C Spire has rolled out ultra-fast Gigabit internet access and related services in 15 Mississippi markets, boosting overall broadband connection speeds in the state by 200 percent since 2014.  The suite of services is competitively priced and is expected to pave the way for a boom in smart home applications and innovation.

Tech Movement Initiative
Residential fiber is part of the C Spire Tech Movement initiative, which is committed to moving communities forward through technology with a focus on broadband access, workforce development and innovation.
