RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) — C Spire is investing $1 billion over the next three years to deploy 5G wireless technology and all-fiber Gigabit broadband internet to more than 200,000 homes and businesses in Mississippi and Alabama.
The project is expected to bring all-fiber infrastructure to within 1,000 feet of half of Mississippi’s residential premises.
It will deliver ultra-fast 5G service to nearly 600 sites — representing over 60% of the state, according to a press release.
In a statement, Republican U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker said the investment will support the advancement of education, health care, technology and small businesses in the state.
