USM buildings get high speed upgrades

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - The Johnson Science Tower and Bobby Chain Technology Center at Southern Miss now have a super fast internet connection.

To celebrate the high tech buildings, officials held a "wire" cutting ceremony on Tuesday. Upgrades to both buildings were funded through a U.S. Department of Education Grant.

In addition to high speed internet access, the re-wiring project also expanded bandwidth to computer users.

Plans are to expand the fast internet connection to other on campus buildings as funds become available.
