C Spire invests $1B to 5G, fiber project in Mississippi and Alabama
C Spire Wireless announced an exciting business move that promises to create jobs and lead to economic growth.
C Spire is investing one billion dollars to speed deployment of 5G in Mississippi and Alabama. The project will provide ultra-fast, all-fiber broadband services to more than 200,000 homes and businesses by 2025 in Mississippi and Alabama.

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves says he’s proud of the work and commitment C Spire has put forth as Mississippi moves into the future. “This is a big deal not only for them as a company, but also the state of Mississippi. As I have the opportunity to talk to more companies and CEOs around the nation who are looking to locate to business-friendly climates, having this 5G fast as an option for them as they look to locate, as they look to where they are going to invest their capital in the future is going to make a huge difference. This is a big, big day for the state of Mississippi.”
C Spire CEO Hu Meena says the investment is expected to result in fiber within reach for half of all Mississippians.
