Mississippi is last in everything. If the Greeks thought like the people in Mississippi that you just need enough to get by, the Parathion would never of been built. The real world looks to the future which is being done today. When you are just satisfied doing what always has been done you fall behind and stay in last place . Holographic technology has been around since the 70's with no way to make it economically. But today we have technology such as the coming quantum effects that make the research worth while and those that have no inspirations will forever be the poor lot catching up. Look at the buildings in MS then look at Dubai and tell me MS is being creative and on top of the curve. It seems MS is happy with the leftovers and will always be third rate. It takes years to install fiber and that is where your thinking needs to be years ahead not what is in your wallet today. Interest rates are low and big inflation is coming what is built now will only increase in price in the coming years.
For me the future is where I aim not at the deer in my yard.

C-Spire only came here because they knew that our public Officials are stupid enough to fall for this scam. They need ran out of town. Makes think there might have been a money made with a elected official, if they wasn't mark it up as being pure stupidity.a

Challenge, accepted!

A.J. Holloway, mayor of Biloxi. Three terms and still an incumbent. Educated at the University of Mississippi (ok, he loses points here...). Began his first term in 1993 and still in office, he took Biloxi from where it was (nice place, not all that impressive) to a multi billion dollar earning city. The roads there are clean (except for Division Street... that place will scare the pants off of you), organized and supplied well enough to survive apocalyptic hurricanes, and overall just a nice place to be with the exception of a homeless problem that every large-ish city has.

Chokwe Lumumba, current Mayor of Jackson. Admitted to the Bar in Mississippi AND Michigan. Educated at Kalamazoo College. I'll give you that he's eccentric, but his eccentricities are in "getting black guys out of the gang and thug lifestyle and instead standing up for their fellow man - race is not to be considered". Yep... he's a powerful black man with an extensive education that fights for white guys as much as black guys, and I'm sure that will burn the soul and spirit of so many people in Corinth. He's more for human rights than for legalities so at times he gets a bit outside of the box but that's a good thing considering the draconic, Orwellian style of legal hoobily doobily in Mississippi. Oh, and while city councilman he organized a system of utilizing abandoned and unused land to grow food that you, literally you the person reading this, ate earlier today. He also helped lower that pesky "didn't graduate high school" rate that plagues your state. Frankly, you stand a good chance of hating him because of his name and his race but he's better than you.

Darren Musselwhite , mayor of Southaven. Went to Ole Miss, so he sort of graduated high school but only in a wildly theoretical way. Has a BBA in Managerial Finance, owns and operates an insurance company that does very, very, very well underwriting the policies many people in Corinth hold. Also, he's a pro baseball player. He's the Desoto Marlins Youth Baseball Organization Founder, Director, Treasurer, and coaches a team for them, too. The guy kind of didn't sit on his butt drinking booze and meth and claiming that the one thing in life he ever did was good enough to never do anything again. You know, like the average person in Corinth complaining about their elected leaders does. He even managed to stay married to one woman for 15 years. I know, you can't understand such words arranged together, can you?

It's not an "all of Mississippi problem". It's a Corinth and near to Corinth problem.

MS has the lowest average income and the highest birth rate of singles as well as the lowest education rate and the highest obesity rate and takes more money from the federal government per person. It only survives on federal spending such as the money pumped into Biloxi. The town would not survive without gambling and all the low life's that go with it. Biloxi smells like a drunken sailor with tobacco breath.
Jackson is one of the highest crime cities in America and the least educated.
Southhaven is a suburb of Memphis and sports does not count as any more than stupid. Part of the problem is MS is it spends time on sports rather than education. You do not build a future based on gladiators.

So what you are saying is Cspire essentially duped over 30 cities and their leaders into applying for fiber and in the end chose Corinth and 8 others to scam by having the audacity to provide them with the means to bring progressive technology to their communities. Well played, Cspire. Well played. Way to stick it to us good!

Do you work for Comcast or AT&T or something? Corinth already has fiber in the ground. Our schools are fiber-enabled, as is the hospital. If its in the ground and Corinthians are given the opportunity bring it to their door, I would venture to say any municipality that didn't jump at the chance of giving their community the option and competitive advantage fiber brings has an ulterior motive for not doing so. How is giving people the options they have asked for when the opportunity presents itself on a silver platter "stupid". I am hoping the tree streets are the first to get it. You don't want it in your neighborhood, just don't sign up for it. I can't get rid of Comcast soon enough.

They're not giving you something you asked for. Fiber connections have been available for a long time in Corinth. You've not bought one yet. You may be asking for it, but you already have it and will not buy it so you do not want it.

If this is your idea of a silver platter, I worry that fancy meals at your home results in E Coli infections. This deal is covered in poo for Corinth. You may not understand because your mind is clouded in thoughts of duhhhh innernets yay. If you compare the offer C Spire is making to the standard offer made by other tier 3 providers in a new market you'd realize how little lube anyone but your elected leaders got.

Even if it was not super high sped it is better than the other companies which give terrible service. Comcast should be brought to court and ATT hung for they are worse at government manipulation than Cspire.
Competition is always a good thing.

Most government people are corrupt or they would not want the job if they were honest. The only way things get done is through connections.

Hahahhahahahha wow, do you seriously believe that? Wait... you don't know what fiber is, do you?

How exactly is a cable made of glass stronger than a cable made of metal? And reliability... how is that affected positively by something made of a more fragile material with the same backbone as the DSL and cable internet you currently have?

You have absolutely no idea about what you speak.

That has nothing to do with reliability or strength. That's a chance occurrence.

Fiber optic internet is provided to your home by fiber optic lines. Fiber optic lines are made of glass. Those lines survived by freak chance, not because they're especially strong.

Side note: Fiber is usually laid underground due to how fragile the lines are. If WTVA has fiber lines on top of a pole, WTVA is ran by idiots. I do not find that to be difficult to believe considering that they're in the Mid South ran by people from the Mid South.

I see a shill that has no technical knowledge of utilities. Fiber is made with plastics also. They are stronger more flexible and stretch. They are not bothered by water or other contaminations such as salt. TVA is not WtVA and the power company puts fiber inside the ground lines on top of the towers that receive lighting strikes without harming the fiber or the signals in them. ATT is at the level of a used car business since the breakup and loss of the crown Bell Labs.
Fiber is replacing copper if you like it or not and to delay only puts you behind the curve just like MS has always been. If you do what you always done you get what you always got. Cause and effect is the real world not your cries that status quo is good enough.

1. I don't live in Corinth or anywhere near there. If I mistook TVA for WTVA, my mistake. I have read WTVA several times on here and figured you/When forgot the W given the extremely high illiteracy rate in your area.

2. Fiber is made with plastics if it's cheap. The better cables are glass coated in plastic. Both are fragile, less strong than metal cable.

3. They're still idiots. It doesn't require a lot of stress to screw up a fiber optic cable. The stress required is less than the stress generated by a power line swinging in the breeze. If TVA puts them on power lines, TVA is ran by idiots. Almost every other area puts them underground.

4. AT&T doesn't exist in my town so I don't care.

5. Fiber already exists in your town so it's not replacing anything. The backbone to all of the internet that exists in Corinth is currently ran by fiber. The only change at this point is that a company is willing to run the fiber connection directly to your home if you and the entire town is willing to pay a frankly too high price to get it. This is, of course, while none of you have any business getting it as none of you could understand how to fully use the line. The citizens of Corinth are far better suited sticking to Cable/DSL as they have no need for fiber and couldn't understand how to fully use it if they tried.

6. I already have FTTH so you getting or not getting FTTH doesn't affect "what I have always done".

7. Status Quo hasn't been cried by me. I've said you people couldn't hope to fully utilize it and can't pay for it. That's not status quo, that's "you're too dumb and poor". Until the people of Corinth figure out how to use a computer for more than retarded Facebook status updates they're fine with DSL and Cable. Frankly, you people would be fine with dial up.

Who made you the lord and master? Perhaps it is the MS intelligence to pay less when people are poor because people pay less. Walmart reduces the stand of living by paying less and selling junk. Quality connections offer opportunity to do more without it you are less. I am not fine even with Comcast speed and price is not even a consideration. Why drink a $200 bottle of wine when you can get a box for $10? If getting high is your goal you can buy gasoline for $3 a gallon.

So you can have FTTH and the rest not? Are you a shill?

Most of your post is a swirling gibber of what the heck are you talking about. I won't be addressing it.

I can have FTTH and you can't because you're an idiot that will be wasting your SSI check on something you don't really understand how to use. I understand that you think a faster line will get the crappy movies you like downloaded via bittorrent faster, but the way you set your computer up won't improve your speed. The computer you own couldn't use the full line ever due to hardware constraints. You'd need several computers. You don't have several computers, and if you do, they're junk and you still don't have enough computers to handle the line to its maximum potential.

I find it hilarious that you idiots keep throwing the word shill around as if I stand to benefit from keeping the providers that are currently in your area as the only providers. The providers you have do not exist in my town. I don't work for an ISP. I state what I state for your own benefit even if I dislike most of your town. I do it because as evidenced by the C Spire deal going on in Corinth, you're far too stupid to understand what is good for you and what is bad for you.

Now go on and hate the messenger and not the message as you're famous for doing and is one of the reasons why your town is a welfare community.
