RIDGELAND, Miss. (May 24, 2023) – C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company, will soon offer internet to more than 4,000 homes in Brookhaven, Mississippi.
The new home fiber broadband service is faster than the national average and offers additional television and related home phone services. Construction of nearly 100 miles of fiber is expected to start in several neighborhoods in early June with activations beginning in early September.
“This ultrafast fiber service is transformative for the Brookhaven community, serving as a platform for innovation and catalyst for technology, investment, economic growth and job creation,” said Jake Cowen, senior vice president and general manager for C Spire. “We are excited to offer residents the benefits of fiber and are deeply committed to continually enhancing our network to deliver the fastest speeds, equipping customers for the future.”
Homeowners can order residential fiber in the Brookhaven area his week. Residents can sign-up at www.cspire.com/fiber. Local government, community and business leaders are rallying residents to sign up for the service.
“We could not be more pleased and excited about C Spire’s investment in Brookhaven. Fast, reliable internet service is foundational for continued growth and prosperity in any community. It is an essential part of everyday life. Our entertainment options, our children’s education, home based businesses, and even our home security systems now require fast, reliable internet service,” said Garrick Combs, executive director of the Brookhaven – Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce. “For the City of Brookhaven and our citizens to be able to partner with a leading-edge technology company that was also born in Southwest Mississippi to provide fiber to the home is an exciting opportunity for our community to continue to grow, attract families to Brookhaven, and increase our quality of life.”
