RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s 15 community colleges are upgrading to a fiber-based broadband network.
Officials say the resource will allow faster internet speeds and more collaboration with other institutions of higher learning and research in the state.
The Mississippi Optical Network is run by C Spire.
It already serves the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State, the Stennis Space Center and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ Engineering Research and Development Center, and other major institutions.
C Spire CEO Hu Meena says the network allows members to access speeds up to 100 Gigabits per second and share virtual resources.
