C Spire announced plans today to begin construction on a Gigabit-speed fiber internet network in Alabama, beginning in the luckiest neighborhoods of Trussville and Jasper. If you live in either of those cities, you can visit cspire.com now to check your address for fiber availability and pre-order C Spire Fiber internet services.
That’s just the beginning. We already know Helena and Tuscaloosa are on the schedule to get C Spire Fiber in 2021. We’re also seeking interest from other Alabama communities who are tired of dealing with buffering, poor service, sneaky charges and long-term contracts from their current internet service providers (ISPs). If you want more reliable and faster broadband internet service, let us know by filling out the interest form after you check your address here.
Unlike other ISPs, C Spire has no data caps, long-term contracts or cancellation fees. We don’t have confusing promotional pricing or packages. Our Blue Shoe Crew installers show up at the time you select (no four-hour windows) and deliver customer-inspired service while they set you up with 99.99 percent reliable fiber internet.
To make the pre-order process easy, simple and quick, you only need to provide your service address and email, then select the services you want. Once construction is finished later this year, you’ll be able to complete your order and schedule installation.
Gigabit fiber internet is arriving just in time, especially in rural areas where broadband internet is spotty or unavailable. Working and learning from home over a fiber internet connection is a complete game changer.
“Fiber’s symmetric speeds—for example, 1 Gig upstream and 1 Gig downstream—are particularly important for interactive learning, remote work and telehealth applications beyond streaming video or surfing the web, which rely on fast download-only internet speeds,” according to Ben Moncrief, Senior Vice President of Strategic Relations at C Spire.
Alabama ranks 38th in the nation in broadband access, and state leaders have made access to fast, reliable and affordable internet for rural areas a priority through state funding and creation of the Alabama Rural Broadband Coalition, a group of community, business and government leaders dedicated to job creation, economic development and business growth.
C Spire has rolled out ultra-fast Gigabit internet access and related services to tens of thousands of consumers, businesses and local and state government operations in Mississippi, boosting overall broadband connection speeds in the state by 200 percent since 2014. The suite of services is paving the way for a boom in smart-home applications, innovation, business expansion and economic growth.
