RIDGELAND, Miss. (June 27, 2024) – C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company, announces fiber expansion in Jackson County. More than 1,700 residents in Pascagoula and more than 500 residents in Moss Point will soon have the option for C Spire’s ultra-fast fiber.

C Spire trucks and crews will be in Pascagoula neighborhoods over the next 6-8 months and Moss Point neighborhoods over the next 18 months. Fiber construction is underway in two neighborhoods in Pascagoula and Moss Point.

“C Spire has always been dedicated to bringing the latest technology to the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Toby Dubois, general manager of home services for C Spire. “Having high-speed internet is crucial for residents and businesses to have a competitive edge. We are proud to partner with the public sector in Pascagoula and Moss Point to offer reliable connectivity to more Mississippians.”

C Spire’s fiber is faster than the national average, has higher bandwidths and is over 99.99 percent reliable. Residents in Pascagoula and Moss Point can check availability for C Spire fiber in their area by visiting www.cspire.com/fiber.

The C Spire fiber expansion in Pascagoula and Moss Point has the community’s backing because of the shared goal for improved connectivity.

“What a wonderful upgrade opportunity the citizens of Pascagoula are receiving with the newly announced build-out of C Spire high-speed fiber in our city,” said Mayor Jay Willis. “C Spire’s history of community involvement and support of economic development in Pascagoula makes them an ideal partner to provide the wonderful quality of life infrastructure improvement this broadband project represents. I’m excited for the improved communication speed and reliability that C Spire fiber will bring all of us.”

“It is great to see this additional private investment in Jackson County by C Spire,” said George Freeland, Jr., executive director of the Jackson County Economic Development Foundation. “Increased access to fiber internet gives more Jackson County residents and businesses the connectivity they need for everything from work to education and entertainment.”

C Spire first launched fiber service to cities across Mississippi in 2014 and has built a thriving network spanning more than 150 communities in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee. C Spire is committed to expanding its fiber service to bring more Mississippi communities online and to bring technology improvements to our home state.

C Spire began offering wireless service in the Pascagoula area in the late 1980s and has had a retail store in Pascagoula since 1999. A cell site in Moss Point was activated in 1998. The company now offers fiber internet services to businesses and residents, and a full suite of products to businesses and government entities.
