C Spire Receives People’s Choice Award as Best Internet Service Provider in Mississippi

Readers of state’s largest newspaper select company’s ISP operation as their favorite in 2017

Ridgeland, Miss. (October 30, 2017) – C Spire, which offers consumers and businesses a range of ultra-fast internet access products and world-class customer service, was selected as the best internet service provider in Mississippi by readers of the Clarion-Ledger, the state’s largest newspaper.

C Spire was highlighted in a special “People’s Choice Awards” supplement published in Sunday’s edition of the newspaper. The award, now in its third year, honors companies chosen by readers as the best in their particular category. C Spire was selected as the best ISP over two other finalists, AT&T and Comcast.

“We’re pleased and honored to receive this recognition from consumers and businesses who are readers of the state’s largest newspaper,” said C Spire President Stephen Bye. “This award belongs to our C Spire Home Services and Business Solutions team members who work tirelessly every day to deliver on our promise to be customer inspired.”

The high-tech firm has been on a mission to expand broadband availability and boost average mobile and fixed broadband speeds in Mississippi. In 2013, the company became the fastest ISP and more than quadrupled speeds in the state following its ground-breaking Fiber-to-the-Home Gigabit broadband initiative.

C Spire recently announced plans for a massive expansion of broadband internet and wireless fiber-based fixed internet to more than 250,000 consumers and small businesses in cities and towns across the state. The major private sector technology deployment will offer speeds ranging from 25 Mbps in underserved areas, 100 Mbps in other communities to 1 Gbps for small businesses using the latest fiber optic and fixed wireless technologies.

The broadband expansion plan is part of a broader C Spire Tech Movement initiative designed to leverage the company’s technology leadership and investments to help transform its service areas. Other elements of the program include creation of a state-of-the-art digital customer care platform for customers and team members and other leadership initiatives to drive innovation and development of a 21st century technology workforce.

Tens of thousands of votes were cast by readers during the special, month-long online “Best of 2017” contest in nine different categories ranging from health and beauty, dining and entertainment and leisure to home and finance and shopping and services
