Leading the way in broadband innovation for rural America.
As our world grows more and more digital, broadband access has shifted from a luxury to necessity, one that's sadly unavailable for many rural areas like those in our home state of Mississippi.
The C Spire Rural Broadband Consortium - a partnership between C Spire, Microsoft, Siklu, Airspan and Nokia - is researching how high-speed internet can be brought to rural America affordably.
Testing is currently underway in Mississippi, but the findings will give helpful insight for rural areas all over the nation, helping them compete in today's economy and empowering their future.
The Consortium is testing broadband technologies aligning with different types of rural areas.
The Consortium is looking at new business models that enable rural deployments.
The Consortium is considering where automation might simplify and reduce costs.
The Consortium is supporting digital skills to encourage and enable broadband adoption.
