C Spire Wireless announces Galaxy S III as first 4G LTE handset

Regional carrier C Spire Wireless (formerly Cellular South) today announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be their first 4G LTE smartphone.  Without providing a launch date or pricing details, we assume it will debut in late June or July with the same $200-$250 price tag. C Spire Wireless becomes the sixth carrier in the United States expected to offer Samsung’s new flagship handset, following last week’s big reveal.

“We’re excited that the Galaxy S III will be among the first 4G LTE devices launched on the nation’s only personalized network optimized for the next generation of high-speed data services,” said Kevin Hankins, chief operating officer for C Spire Wireless.

Come September, C Spire Wireless expects to deploy its 4G LTE network across 20 markets in Mississippi, covering 2,700 square miles and more than 1.2 million consumers.  What’s more, they plan to be the first provider to offer 4G LTE speeds in Mississippi, beating out the bigger players.
