The City of Starkville currently has two private gigabit internet providers. In 2013, Starkville was one of nine Mississippi cities chosen by CSpire for a pilot fiber to the home program. In 2014, CSpire made its first residential connection. To date CSpire has laid fiber optic infrastructure in 30% of the city. MaxxSouth acquired the city’s incumbent cable provider in 2014 and in 2015 announced that it would launch a citywide gigabit fiber initiative. MaxxSouth has laid fiber optic infrastructure in approximately 40% of the city and has committed to a comprehensive buildout within the next five years.
