Students aren’t the only ones learning at schools across Mississippi these days. Behind the scenes, C Spire engineers monitoring the wireless network in real time have noticed usage demands increase at cell sites near school campuses around the state.
The Pine Belt region of southern Mississippi has been the focus of several recent wireless network enhancements, especially along U.S. Highway 84/98 from Laurel and Hattiesburg to Natchez.
Wireless customers living and working in Madison are seeing a stronger signal near one of the busiest non-interstate intersections in Mississippi—Hwy. 51 at Hoy Road. Fifteen thousand cars pass through this main corridor in the heart of Madison every day, traveling to work and home as well as shopping in nearby commercial districts.
It’s true. We love our smartphones—especially in Mississippi, where we spend more than five and a half hours on them, on average, every day. That’s 35 percent more than the global average, and if compared to countries around the world, it would make us No. 2 just behind the Philippines. (The entire U.S. ranks No. 27 with 3.5 hours/day.)
As you see, we have plenty of reasons to constantly monitor the C Spire wireless network. But ensuring our customers have a positive experience takes more than monitoring and maintenance. It takes proactive steps to enhance that experience through adding more capacity and coverage.
