C Spire Increases Speed and Capacity in the Greater Hattiesburg Area


RIDGELAND, Miss., (Dec. 9, 2022) – C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company, has increased speed and capacity in the Greater Hattiesburg Area.

“The Pine Belt area has always been very important to C Spire. In fact, Hattiesburg was the first market where we began offering cellular service back in 1989.” said Craig Jackson, general manager of wireless markets for C Spire. “Increasing our network speed and capacity and keeping up with the needs of our customers is very important to C Spire.”

The strategic goal is to consistently improve the customer experience on C Spire’s network by adding speed and capacity and coverage at micro and macro cell sites to stay ahead of customer needs. Therefore, C Spire constantly monitors customer usage and usage patterns to ensure the customer’s experience is optimal.

“We have also increased capacity by adding small cells and enhancements near schools because so many of our customers are impacted in these areas,” said Alan Jones, chief network officer for C Spire. “Parents in the student pickup line need to stay connected for remote work, and many watch videos or scroll through social media to pass time while waiting. And, of course, high school students are high users as well. Coverage in schools is more important than ever as students and educators use our devices for emergencies while around the schools.”

C Spire recently increased speed and capacity in the Greater Hattiesburg area:

  • Petal High School
  • Presbyterian Christian School
  • Columbia High School
  • Hwy 98/ Pierce Road
  • Hwy 98 East
  • Hwy 98 Bypass
