Mississippi to Get 1 Gbps Consumer FTTH Service from C Spire

  • C Spire
RIDGELAND, MS - C Spire, a telecommunications and technology services company, released details about its plans for an aggressive deployment of 1 Gbps ultra high-speed Internet access in Mississippi, called C Spire Fiber to the Home, that is designed to attract investment and economic growth by creating a "Silicon South." C Spire’s Fiber to the Home service will be available to any community near an existing fiber route that welcomes it with fast-track permitting and homeowner pre-registration.

C Spire has issued a “Get Fiber First” call-to-action. Applications will be accepted from neighborhoods, towns and cities in Mississippi that have a passion for innovation and the desire to make their communities better. The communities that want it the most, and move quickest, will get it first.

While the benefits of C Spire’s Fiber to the Home 1 Gig Internet will be felt immediately within homes, the community-wide, long-term effects of the service and its real-world applications in all aspects of life are immense.

  • Healthcare - Patients will have unprecedented access to healthcare professionals and diagnostic tools, otherwise unavailable - providing answers to healthcare challenges.

  • Education - Students will have the competitive edge they need by accessing digital learning tools in the home, robust and video-rich learning experiences and real-time teacher-student interactions online and in the classroom.

  • Civic life - Fiber offers a platform that encourages citizen engagement - offering digital access to town halls, live chats with government officials and more.

  • Municipal services - Cities and counties will be able to experiment with new, more cost efficient ways to deliver municipal services like sewer, water, garbage disposal, electricity and natural gas.

  • Business and job growth - Fiber will nurture an environment for tech start-ups and home-based small businesses that provide today’s innovation and tomorrow’s jobs.


“Technology infrastructure is critical both for families and businesses as we work together to build a better Mississippi,” Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant said. “We continue working to increase access to broadband services across Mississippi, and I appreciate C Spire for making this important investment.”

C Spire has resources, technology and equipment in place to quickly deploy C Spire Fiber to the Home to communities in the region. The company's vast fiber optic infrastructure, which includes over 4,000 miles of fiber cable, with another 1,500 miles slated for installation in the next year, already supports its advanced 4G LTE network and C Spire Business Solutions, and has paved the way for C Spire’s fiber deployment.
