C Spire announces new Internet plan

Posted: Updated:

RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) - C Spire has announced an initiative to give homes in Mississippi the chance for internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second - about 100 times the average speed.

CEO Hu Meena made the announcement Tuesday at a news conference at the C Spire headquarters in Ridgeland.

The regional telecommunications and technology services company's ultra high-speed Internet access will be marketed as C Spire Fiber to the Home.

C Spire hopes to have the first city connected by sometime in 2014.

Jared Baumann, Brand Product Manager at C Spire, says the company has about 4,000 miles of fiber optic cable throughout the state and plans to put down about 1,600 more miles.

C Spire is already offering high-speed, high-bandwidth connections to schools and businesses.
