The High Price of Slow Internet

A study by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance points out that in recent years, the price many consumers pay for slow internet service is almost identical the price people pay for high speed 100 Mbps service.

Often, this is because old, slow DSL service is the only option for customers. So the companies that offer service are able to do so at pretty much any price they choose. And when there is no competition, there is often no external market pressure for the ISP to upgrade its technology to Fiber or to utilize a new technology like C Spire’s 5G Internet.

At C Spire, we’re serious about improving the lives of Mississippians through the deployment of affordable, high speed internet. We are leveraging our 8,500+ miles of fiber optic cable across the state to extend broadband to more areas than ever before. That’s our mission.
