Nothing in Mississippi is faster than C Spire Fiber’s gigabit internet. Ask anyone of the thousands of customers, and they’ll be sure to tell you so. But if you’re like most folks, a growing percentage of your data usage comes on wirelessly connected devices via your in-home WiFi. And as we’ve covered previously, as soon as you are on WiFi, you can expect your Internet speeds to drop significantly.
In this article, we take a look at a few tips you can implement to ensure you’re getting the absolute best out of your amazing C Spire Fiber Gigabit Internet connection when using WiFi.
C Spire has claimed the top spot as Mississippi’s fastest fixed broadband Internet service provider (ISP) for the second year in a row, according to a new report by Seattle-based Ookla, the worldwide leader in broadband Internet connection testing and performance metrics.
We’ve learned that no matter how often we talk about our blazing fast Gigabit Fiber to the Home Internet service, folks can’t fully appreciate the difference until they’re able to try the product out for themselves. So here’s your chance.
We’ve set up Fiber to the Home demo’s at 8 of our retail stores throughout Mississippi that give you the opportunity to kick the tires on both our Gigabit Internet and Super HD™ TV service in a relaxing, no-stress environment meant to replicate an in-home setting. And the best part is that after experiencing Fiber to the Home, you’ll be able to sign up right there in the store!
Gig is short for Gigabit which is a measurement unit commonly used when talking about Internet network speeds. So when you hear Gigabit or Megabit or Kilobit, you’re really talking about Bits Per Second (and multiples thereof). It’s a measurement of how many Bits (chunks of data) travel over a network per second.
When it comes to Internet Speeds, bigger is better. The more data your connection can support, the better quality video you can stream, the more video you can simultaneously stream, and the better overall experience you will enjoy.
We recently published a support article that includes guidance about the Wi-Fi speeds you can expect with C Spire Fiber to the Home Internet service. The article contains a lot of detailed information to help you determine whether you’re getting the fastest possible performance with your particular devices, or if you need to consider changing something in your environment or upgrading your device to get the WiFi speed you want.
