Quitman, Miss. It was an opportunity for the residents of Quitman to ask questions about what they are getting. And what they are getting is something truly state of the art. One gigabit Internet is something that is very rare to find, especially in a small town, but it will provide Quitman with an opportunity to bring the town into the 21st century in a big way.
Steve Davidson, of C Spire, said, "This is just awesome. We are very very excited that Quitman is one of the finalist communities. This is something that can make an impact on them not just today but years to come," Davidson explained. "This is a statement for this town to have something like this in it, and is an awesome opportunity for Quitman to leap ahead from where they are today."
To say it is state of the art would be almost an understatement, what C Spire is offering is above and beyond what most large cities have access to.
Davidson says "We’re talking 100 times state of the art. So this is Internet that is 100 times faster than what is offered today in the United States, so this is not an incremental step this is a quantum leap ahead."
In addition to having this technology, C Spire is offering it at an extremely low price, almost a quarter of what large cities have to pay.
Davidson says "Some of the places this has been done before, and it is very few, the pricing on it has been too high. It has not been accessible to a broad number of people. It has been specially our goal to have lots and lots of people to afford this pricing."
