Jackson Continues Early Momentum by Qualifying Third Area for C Spire’s 1 Gbps Fiber to the Home Internet Technology Initiative

Hinds County town turns another area “green” as part of nation’s first and only statewide rollout of 100 times faster Internet access

JACKSON, Miss.--()--Homeowner pre-registration exceeded the required threshold in a third area of Mississippi’s largest city this week – helping Jackson qualify for C Spire’s ultra-fast 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) Fiber to the Home Internet service and related super HD TV and home phone services.

Jackson’s Belhaven Northeast fiberhood reached its pre-registration target Thursday and now joins the Eastover and Fondren East fiberhoods, which qualified for the next-generation services last week.

The Ridgeland-based telecommunications and technology services company expects to finish engineering and begin construction in the latest fiberhood in mid-July. Commercial service is expected to be available in early November in all three areas.
