City approves C Spire agreement for broadband Internet
Published: November 20,2013
CLINTON — Clinton officials have unanimously approved a franchise agreement with C Spire that clears the way for city neighborhoods to start marketing themselves as the best place for 1 gigabit-per-second broadband Internet.
The agreement is for 25 years, with two 10-year automatic rollovers that Ridgeland-based C Spire can trigger unless the company gives notice otherwise at least six months in advance.
That term is more than twice as long as the city’s agreement with AT&T, whose contract runs for 10 years.
The Clarion-Ledger reports C Spire will pay franchise fees equal to the lesser of 3 percent of gross revenues the company makes from the sale of basic video services or the lowest percentage payable by a third-party provider of video services.
