C Spire Wireless says it will launch 4G LTE services in the Jackson metropolitan area on Friday.

The Ridgeland wireless provider says service will be turned on in the cities of Jackson, Clinton, Flowood, Pearl, Brandon, Ridgeland, Madison, Flora and Richland.

The company will also release its third 4G LTE device, the Franklin Wireless smart USB hotspot.
