From Press Reports


C Spire Wireless has launched the next generation of mobile broadband in three Webster County towns with the activation of its 4G (Fourth Generation) Long Term Evolution service offering consumers and businesses faster data speeds and advanced capabilities on its network.

The company’s 4G LTE launch in Maben, Mathiston and Eupora means customers can now enjoy the fastest wireless experience available to download apps and game faster, open files almost instantly, do real-time video chat, surf the mobile web and stream movies, music and video at speeds up to 10 times faster than before.

“We’re pleased that local businesses and consumers in these communities now have ready access to the next generation of mobile broadband services,” said Bryan Templeton, regional manager of retail services for C Spire Wireless. “This technology will improve opportunities for taking care of business on-the-go and carrying out numerous mobile tasks at a pace that’s significantly faster than consumers have ever experienced before on a wireless network.”

Maben, Mathiston and Eupora are among 40 Mississippi markets that have received C Spire’s advanced 4G LTE services since September. All of the markets with 4G LTE service are part of a multi-million dollar investment to bring the next generation of high-speed technology to customers.

The company plans to continue to introduce the services in 71 cities and 51 counties this year covering a population of 496,000 across the state. When the latest phase is completed in November, 4G LTE service will be available to six out of every 10 consumers and businesses in Mississippi.

“We’re proud of our launch of 4G LTE services in Webster County, but we’re even more excited about continuing to contribute to the economic development of this region,” Templeton said, noting that the company has invested millions of dollars to expand its network and give Webster County businesses and consumers the best personalized wireless experience available.

Webster County Supervisor Paul Crowley, who represents Maben and Mathiston, lauded C Spire for its decision to invest in the region. “Introduction of C Spire’s 4G LTE mobile broadband services is good news for all of these communities in Webster County. We appreciate the company’s decision to make us one of the regions to receive this exciting service,” Crowley said. “This announcement reinforces C Spire’s commitment to providing our residents and businesses with access to the latest wireless technology.”
