C Spire Completes Cable Route

C Spire has announced completion of a 225-mi.-long fiber-optic cable route from Kiln, Mississippi, to West Mobile, along Highway 90 and county roads. Next, it plans “to rapidly deploy next-generation technology infrastructure for consumers and businesses.” The two-year-plus, five-phase, multimillion-dollar project overcame weather delays, permitting requirements and sensitive environmental issues. It placed conduit and fiber-optic cable underground and underneath or around several bodies of water, including the Pascagoula River, Biloxi Back Bay and Fort Bayou. C Spire officials said completion of the route is the third major fiber long-haul project covering the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coasts, adding to major routes already existing along U.S. Highways 98 and 45. The latest route also provides fiber backbone to the company’s cell sites and resilience and redundancy for the network.
