Corinth becomes fourth Mississippi city to qualify for C Spire’s fiber to the home

c-spire-lte-106CORINTH — Corinth, long known as the “Crossroads” city of the South, may soon become famous for being one of the nation’s most technologically advanced cities.

The Alcorn County town in northeastern Mississippi qualified its first area this week for C Spire’s historic 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) Fiber to the Home initiative, offering 100 times faster Internet access and related super HD TV and home phone services.

Municipal leaders and C Spire officials said Corinth’s North fiberhood, one of three in the city, reached its 45 percent target for homeowner pre-registration on Tuesday, paving the way for the engineering and construction phases of the historic fiber optic technology initiative to begin in 2015.
