CLINTON, Miss., Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowner pre-registration exceeded the required threshold in an eighth area of Clinton this week – helping the city expand eligibility for C Spire's ultra-fast 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) Fiber to the Home Internet and related SuperTM HD TV and home phone services.

Municipal leaders and C Spire officials announced today that Clinton's Countrywood-Olde Vineyard fiberhood reached its pre-registration target on Tuesday and now joins the Southern Oaks, Hunter's Ridge-Indian Trails, Cascades, Bruenburg North, Bruenburg South, Lakeridge and Linda Drive-Copper Creek-Pinehaven Road (Eastside) fiberhoods, which qualified for the 100 times faster Internet earlier this year.

The Ridgeland-based telecommunications and technology services company expects to finish engineering and begin construction in the latest Clinton fiberhood by the end of the year with commercial service available in March 2016.  Commercial service was activated in the Southern Oaks and Hunter's Ridge-Indian Trails fiberhoods in June and is expected to be available in the remaining five fiberhoods by the end of the year.
