Frequently Asked Questions
Fiber to the Home Basics
A transformative service that includes an ultra-fast 1 Gbps Internet connection, plus home phone and television, provided over fiber optic connections directly to the home.
C Spire Fiber currently provides Internet access and data circuits over fiber to schools and government. This will continue to be customized and priced unique to the customer.
This is a breakthrough technology that can dramatically change the way you connect and bring the world into your home. Speed this fast opens immense opportunities for the individual user to discover new opportunities. To start, here are some key benefits to consider:
We anticipate as early as possible in 2014.
There is not a pre-determined count. It largely depends on the launch community(ies) – but we are definitely looking to deploy in the largest number of homes possible.
Fiber optic cabling is a cable that carries one or more strands of glass. Digital pulses of light carry signals along the line – what we call the ‘speed of light.’ This is the preeminent technology for Internet speed and reliability – it offers the highest speeds, best signal transmission, and best reliability in adverse weather conditions.
In most cases C Spire uses directional boring. In some rare cases aerial pole attachments are used.
C Spire is committed to providing personal service to all of its customers. The exact role of the neighborhood C Spire Wireless store will be determined based upon the final deployment community(ies).
Get Fiber First Challenge
Pre-registration will begin on this site shortly – please check back for details. There will be a $10 pre-registration fee. The fee may be refundable if we do not build your specific location, or applied as an account credit if we do.
Pre-registration is required to determine the neighborhood(s) to build first.
It is up to you! Pre-registration will be open to individuals living in finalist cities shortly – only the neighborhoods that reach threshold pre-registration levels will be built. Some or all finalist cities may get service – it depends on local demand.
We received an enormous response to our Request for Information from local Mississippi governmental entities. The ultimate decision on finalist localities was based on the count of online individual interest applications, proximity to existing C Spire fiber lines, an effective proposal to streamline construction permitting and reduce costs, as well as a strong vision of community impact.
We anticipate moving to other communities as quickly as we can. Please stay tuned for further details in coming months.
C Spire will go to neighborhoods in which fiber assets are nearby and where homeowners move quickly to pre-register for service in sufficient quantities to make the deployment economically feasible.
Internet, Television, and Home Phone Service
Yes. This is one of the great technological benefits of the service. C Spire will deliver 1 Gbps upload, not just download. This is particularly important for home-based businesses, but also supports live two-way video conferencing sessions and other benefits still to be discovered. Actual transmission speeds will depend on the user equipment.
Yes, it works with standard Wi-Fi routers. To handle full gigabit speeds, a Wi-Fi router will need to use the 802.11ac standard.
Our standard TV package will have 135+ channels and our expanded package has 180+ channels. In addition, we have several al-a-cart add on options, like HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, and Premium Sports Packages.
We offer channel packages that include the channels that you love for an attractive price and a viewing experience that we believe you will enjoy, but you have the option to choose a non-TV package from C Spire.
No. Our TV and Home Phone offerings are only available if you are an Internet customer.
