RIDGELAND — Nine Mississippi cities have been selected finalists in C Spire’s “Get Fiber First Challenge,” a project to provide homes with Internet and digital television connections that are 100 times faster than the national average.
During Monday’s announcement at the C Spire headquarters in Ridgeland, officials explained the next step for the finalists, and unveiled the pricing for the service, which will move data at one-gigabit-per-second along a fiber optic network.
Batesville, Clinton, Corinth, Hattiesburg, Horn Lake, McComb, Quitman, Ridgeland and Starkville were selected from 33 cities and towns who submitted applications last month to be the first to obtain the fiber optic technology for their town.
