In a resolution to encourage C-Spire to grant the City of Corinth a first launch community for the company's Fiber to Home initiative, the resolution states this will be and asset to the citizens of Corinth both now and in the future and the city recognizes the advantages of participating in the early stages of such a program.
“This will be faster than the speed of sound and this technology is just amazing,” Corinth Mayor Tommy Irwin said. “We live in a day that is a whole lot different from the 1960s and this program will definitely be a positive step for us in this day and age. This will be really good for those who can use it for educational purposes and we are going to work fast on making this happen.”
The Fiber to Home program will allow for the Internet to be delivered approximately 100 times faster than anything that is currently offered, according to the resolution. It also states the program will enhance entertainment and communications for both from an informational and performance standpoint and will permit uses of technology in manners that are not currently experienced, including telecommuting and video conferencing.
With all these proposed improvements, the city board decided to make an executive decision and voted to pass the resolution for economic development purposes in a special called meeting Thursday at city hall.
