Town Forum will explain ‘Fiber First’

By Rupert Howell
C-Spire Fiber and the City of Batesville have planned an “Informational Town Forum,” for next Tuesday, November 19 at 6 p.m. at Batesville Civic Center.

Everyone is invited to attend to learn about the “Feed the Speed Batesville” campaign.
C Spire CEO Hu Meena issued a call to action in September for towns and cities  to tell why they need, want and will benefit from the future opportunities and potential of C Spire’s 1 Gig Fiber to the Home service.

Nine Mississippi cities including Batesville were selected finalists in C Spire’s “Get Fiber First Challenge.”
