3 towns chosen to receive fiber-to-home Internet service

(WMC-TV) - Three north Mississippi cities have been selected as finalists to receive C-Spire's fiber-to-home Internet service.

Horn Lake, Corinth, and Batesville are among the finalists to receive the new service that is estimated to be 100 times faster than average speeds.

Now, the cities are in a race to get ‘wired-up' first by having residents pre-register.

All of the finalist cities will eventually be able to receive the high-speed service.

The lack of high-speed Internet options has plagued some people in DeSoto County.

Horn Lake encouraged residents to participate in the race by using social media, passing out flyers to homes and businesses, and creating a YouTube video.

Action News 5's Michael Clark will have more on what Monday's announcement means for Horn Lake.
