C Spire to build $20M data center in Starkville

The parent company of C Spire Wireless will build a $20 million data center in Starkville, with hopes of selling more computer services to businesses.

Ridgeland-based C Spire plans to break ground in November and complete construction on the first phase in November 2014, when customers would begin using the center.

Plans were announced Thursday at a news conference at Mississippi State University’s Thad Cochran Research Park, which will host the 22,000 square foot first phase. Two more phases are planned.
