JACKSON, Miss.--()--Mississippi’s largest city and its state capital is joining forces with C Spire in a technology program to help Jackson residents learn more about the benefits of ultra-fast 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) Fiber to the Home broadband Internet access.

City leaders and C Spire executives announced plans today to provide free Gigabit Internet access at two municipal community centers that promise to boost awareness about the benefits of 100 times faster broadband fiber-based Internet access and related super HD TV and home phone services.

The technology program, which is expected to help the city expand its computer learning lab at the Johnnie C.
