As a citizen of Ridgeland, the city needs your help in becoming the first community in Mississippi to launch the C Spire Fiber to Home program. According to C Spire, it’s a service that includes an ultra-fast 1 Gbps Internet connection, plus home phone and television, provided over fiber optic connections directly to the home. The Internet speed is 100 times faster than Internet we have today.
C Spire tells us that fiber in your home will do amazing things for your Internet connection, allowing you to stream multiple movies on multiple devices in your home, provide web browsing with instant page changes and no buffering, and a lot more. Although we do not know what the price for the service will be, C Spire says that the price will be competitive to what we currently pay for 100 times slower service that cannot do as much.
A team of city employees has met and determined what needs to get done in order to complete the Request for Information (RFI) that is due to C Spire before Oct. 20. An important part of that RFI is determining the community’s level of interest and support for Fiber to Home. We cannot have a winning application and become the launch site in Mississippi for the Fiber to Home network without the involvement of the community. That’s where you come in!
If you interested in ultra-fast Internet service, unlike anything you have ever had at home, please complete the fast and easy online interest survey: http://www.cspire.com/fiberhome/fiber_signup.html. On the right side of the page, you will see a section labeled, “Individuals.” Please complete this online survey and submit.
If you support fiber to home in Ridgeland, then please ask as many individuals as you know in Ridgeland to complete the online survey. Share the link above with them. We cannot do this without you!
If you are a member of an organization or community group, please complete the RFI Exhibit B and return to the community affairs coordinator: Sandra Monohan, City of Ridgeland, P.O. Box 217, Ridgeland, MS 39158. If you prefer to fax, send it to 601-856-7819 or email it to Sandra.Monohan@RidgelandMS.org.
Thank you for your support as we race to become the launch community for C Spire Fiber to Home.
