Enery company Entergy and C Spire are teaming up on an $11 million fiber infrastructure project spanning 300 miles in 15 Mississippi counties.

Under terms of the agreement, C Spire will install fiber optic cable and related broadband communications infrastructure for Entergy along five routes that cover 302 miles in 15 counties and pass 21 small towns, cities and communities.

The project was conceived by Brandon Presley, chairman of the state’s Public Service Commission. Work is expected to begin later this spring.
