If you’re from Mississippi, you probably know a few things about Wiggins. Maybe you’ve enjoyed the recreation at Flint Creek Water Park or stopped into the Whistle Stop Café for a roast beef po’ boy smothered in brown gravy.

But if you’ve only passed through town on Hwy. 49, here’s another reason to stop and explore: new C Spire 5G, which is providing faster speeds for residents and visitors who use our wireless network.

What is 5G?

Bringing 5G to—pardon the pun, WiGGGGGins—is another example of how C Spire lives its “customer inspired” promise. Our techs are out every day installing new 5G and other enhancements to the C Spire wireless network across our footprint. Even in small towns other wireless providers might overlook.

The ongoing C Spire 5G rollout in Mississippi has recently brought faster speeds to small towns like Batesville, Como, Poplarville and Marks, as well as larger cities like Gulfport, Laurel and Meridian.

During 2022, C Spire deployed enhanced LTE and 5G capacity and coverage network upgrades to well over 300 cell site locations. Nearly every day another pocket of C Spire Country sees increased speeds for browsing and streaming media, and the comfort of continually upgraded coverage.

C Spire's latest 5G and LTE deployments are part of a $1 billion investment in expanding our network and the fiber infrastructure that powers our wireless towers.
