Jackson becomes first Mississippi city to qualify seven areas for C Spire's 1 Gbps Fiber to the Home

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from C Spire   

Homeowner pre-registration exceeded the required threshold in a seventh area of Mississippi's largest city this week – helping Jackson expand eligibility for C Spire's ultra-fast 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) Fiber to the Home Internet access and related Super HD™ TV and home phone services.

Jackson's Aububon Park-Little Europe-Indian Streets fiberhood reached its pre-registration target Monday and now joins the Sheffield-Sherwood Forrest-Massena, Highlands East-Meadowbrook Highlands-Fontaine, Country Club, Belhaven Northeast, Eastover and Fondren East fiberhoods, which qualified for the next-generation suite of services earlier this year.

The Ridgeland-based telecommunications and technology services company expects to finish engineering and begin construction this summer in the latest Jackson fiberhood to qualify for the next-generation services.  Construction started on Monday in the Country Club area and is scheduled to begin next week in the Eastover fiberhood. Commercial service is expected to be available later this year in all seven areas.
