C Spire expanding coverage 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 begun deploying more low-band spectrum throughout much of its 4G LTE+ network to help boost speeds and provide better overall coverage for consumers.

The telecom and technology services company, which operates the nation's largest privately held wireless communications unit, is adding  700 MHz and 850 MHz low-band spectrum to more than 500 existing cell sites over the next nine months, which will help improve coverage over longer distances and inside offices, commercial buildings and homes.

Much of the company's service area includes large swaths of undeveloped rural areas with lower population density – so the use of low-band spectrum will help C Spire deliver on its speed and coverage promise, said Chief Technology Officer Stephen Bye.  A typical cell site that uses low-band spectrum can cover a much broader geographic area than multiple sites using mid-band spectrum, he said.
