Company asks cities and towns to join the race to be the first 1 Gbps
Fiber to the Home community and help transform the region into the
“Silicon South” by spurring technology investment and economic growth
C Spire executives revealed details about the company’s ambitious plans to move forward with an aggressive deployment of 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) ultra high-speed Internet access, called C Spire Fiber to the Home, at a news conference attended by state government officials, business executives, mayors and economic development leaders.
“As a brand that’s been pushing the envelope of innovation our entire existence, it’s only natural for us to want to provide the ‘what’s next’ to the customers we serve,” said
Meena said the company took the bold step to launch its 1 Gbps Fiber to the Home initiative because, “We know that unlocking the potential of next generation technology for the communities we serve requires taking optical fiber all the way to their door.” C Spire’s Fiber to the Home service will be available to any community near an existing fiber route that opens its arms to welcome it, with fast-track permitting and homeowner pre-registration.
C Spire will be accepting applications from neighborhoods, towns and cities in
“While we know some of the tangible benefits that fiber offers to individuals, families, businesses and entire communities, we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible with 100-times-faster Internet,” Meena said. “Similar to the transition from dial-up to broadband, no one could fathom that people would one day be able to shop online, download software and watch endless hours of video on YouTube. The undiscovered potential of fiber is what’s most exciting and compelling about our plans.”
