C Spire leaps forward with latest boost in wireless 4G LTE+ network performance

RIDGELAND, MS -

This is a news release from C Spire

C Spire, whose wireless unit is one of the nation's leading mobile service providers, announced today that it has doubled the bandwidth and power throughout much of its 4G LTE+ network, resulting in faster peak speeds and better overall coverage for consumers.

The telecom and technology services company, which operates the nation's largest privately held wireless communications unit, said its "Covered in Blue" network enhancement and expansion initiative has improved average mobile broadband speeds for consumers by 71 percent, rivaling speeds offered by many fixed broadband Internet service providers.

In the last six months, the company has doubled the wireless spectrum on 604 of its 681 4G LTE+ cell sites in Mississippi, boosted power on 397 cell sites and expanded 4G+ LTE coverage to 115 new cell sites along with a myriad of other improvements to routers, switches, processors and cell site equipment to enhance overall network performance.
