Lucky residents living in nine Mississippi cities are now able to pre-register for C-Spire's upcoming 1Gbps fiber-to-home Internet service. It's supposedly the nation's first and only statewide roll out of 1Gbps broadband, which translates into Internet access that's up to 100 times faster than the national average broadband speeds for residents in each of the nine selected cities.

Specifically, the 1Gbps service is blazing a trail through Batesville, Clinton, Corinth, Hattlesburg, Horn Lake, McComb, Quitman, Ridgeland, and Starkville. Those who pre-register must make a $10 refundable deposit and provide credit card information.

Cable Modem

Pricing for the service runs $80 per month for Internet alone. Internet and home phone runs $100 per month; Internet and digital TV runs $140 per month; and bundling all three packages costs residents $160. If a customer also subscriber's to C-Spire's wireless service, they'll receive a $10 monthly discount off any of the three packages.

"There’s a tremendous amount of excitement in each of these communities and a strong desire to be among the first to receive the 1 Gig Internet service to the home," said Hu Meena, president and CEO of C Spire. "We’re looking forward to bringing tomorrow’s technology to these Mississippi communities today because we know that this service has the power to transform communities into hubs for technology investment and economic growth."

Mississippi is well ahead of the curve in the U.S., where 3 out of 10 adults don't even have broadband service at home.

Lucky Mississippi,..............

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
