C Spire’s 4G LTE network begins deployment

C Spire Wireless (formerly Cellular South) has begun its rollout of a 4G LTE network, starting with two markets.  Those of you who live in McComb, Mississippi and Greenville, Mississippi will find that you now have the option to purchase a Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE capable of data speeds that are 10X faster than previously available.

The handset, like its Sprint counterpart, runs Android 4.0 and features a 1.5 GHZ dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch ColorBoost display, 8GB internal storage, NFC, and HMDI output.  Pricing is listed at $199 with a two-year service agreement and can be purchased immediately.  Not your favorite phone?  You might also be interested in pre-ordering their Samsung Galaxy S III, however there’s no pricing listed just yet.

Although C Spire is undoubtedly excited about its deployment of the first two markets, the carrier is not going to stand around congratulating themselves long.  According to their press releases, C Spire plans to offer 4G LTE services in up to 31 Mississippi markets by middle of October with another 6 due by the end of year.
