2023-08-01

RIDGELAND, Miss. (August 1, 2023) – C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company has invested more than $20 million in wireless network enhancements in the first six months of 2023. This includes hundreds of new and updated 5G and LTE sites across its Mississippi footprint.

"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. “Adding capacity and coverage at micro and macro cell sites and addressing special needs for areas across our footprint is a way for us to exceed the needs of our customers."

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.

So far, more than 200 new or enhanced cell sites have been completed. Additionally, two-thirds of these upgrades included bringing more 5G to the Jackson metro area, Oxford, Wiggins, Kosciusko and across the Gulf Coast region.
