C Spire expands 4G+ services with new 540 cell sites

American telecom carrier C Spire today said it has set up 540 cell sites in 49 new Mississippi, Alabama and Florida markets to offer 4G+ services.

C Spire did not share Capex (capital spending) for the additional cell sites.

Since 2012, C Spire has introduced 4G+ service in 96 Mississippi, Alabama and Florida markets with 639 cell sites. In the latest phase, 4G+ service is available to six out of every 10 consumers and businesses in the region, said C Spire.

C Spire now offers wireless data speeds up to 10 times to consumers and businesses.

The company also has added 4G+ capacity in other Mississippi markets, including Oxford, Cleveland, Columbus, Starkville, Vicksburg, Jackson, Madison, Clinton, Hattiesburg, Laurel, Pascagoula, Gulfport, Ocean Springs, Biloxi and Lucedale.

David Smith, vice president of Network Engineering for C Spire, said: “Wile others are content to offer 4G service, we’ve engineered our network to deliver a powerful mobile broadband experience that is centered on our customers and their needs.”
