RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) Cellular South says it will expand its new high-speed wireless network to 78 Mississippi cities and add 50 new cell sites this year.
The Ridgeland-based company announced its plans Tuesday. Cellular South says it has spent $350 million in Mississippi on its wireless network since 2006 and its high-speed service will be available in 29 of the state's 30 largest cities.
The company says the network will allow customers faster access to the Internet, including e-mail and music and video downloads. The expansion is targeted for much of the 15-county Mississippi Delta region as well as 10 counties in southwest Mississippi and Lauderdale County in east Mississippi.
It includes the cities of Cleveland, Greenville, Greenwood, Grenada, Meridian, Natchez, Brookhaven and McComb. (
