C Spire Continues to Enhance Network Capacity in Rural Areas While Preparing for Mardi Gras Events Across the Mississippi Gulf Coast


RIDGELAND, Miss., (Feb. 16, 2023) - C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company, has continued to invest in wireless enhancements across the Mississippi Gulf Coast, boosting service to schools, cities, sheriff’s offices – and just in time for Mardi Gras.

C Spire’s wireless network, as well as how customers utilize it, is always evolving. In fact, in Mississippi, the average customer uses their smartphone about five and a half hours every day. This is 35% more than the global average – translating into greater demand from residents, cities, municipalities, schools, and law enforcement. And with Mardi Gras in full swing, the Gulf Coast area is hosting more than 20 separate events through February 21st, pushing demand for wireless even higher.

"Our goal is to consistently focus on our customers usage patterns and improve the customer experience," said Alan Jones, Chief Network Officer for C Spire. He added, "adding capacity and coverage at micro and macro cell sites and addressing special needs like Mardi Gras is a way for us to keep up with the needs of our customers."

C Spire is committed to consistently improving the customer experience and constantly monitors customer usage and usage patterns to ensure the customer’s experience is a good one.

“Our customer data usage is high across all areas of the coast, not just in the bigger cities," stated Craig Jackson, General Manager, Wireless for C Spire. He added, " We have also continued to invest in coverage and capacity enhancements and 5G expansion in more rural areas of the coast as well.”
