'C Spire Home is putting cities in their market area light years ahead of other cities nationwide with these advanced services,' says Technology Industry Analyst Jeff Kagan

C Spire announced C Spire Home, a growing portfolio of services as part of their ultra-fast, high speed 1 Gbps Internet service. This will let C Spire launch several next-generation services including home automation, security and monitoring, according to the C Spire press release, July 10.

Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.

“This is a home run for C Spire customers. We have been hearing about the advanced services starting to be introduced nationwide by national phone companies like AT&T, cable television companies like Comcast and search engines like Google. However so far they are limited to a few larger markets scattered around the country. That means many customers in many cities who are chomping at the bit will have to wait much longer to see these advanced services,” says Wireless analyst Jeff Kagan.

“C Spire has been changing that dynamic in their market area. C Spire sees the potential benefit in these advanced services and is bringing them to customers within their market area sooner rather than later. This is a very unique approach and very exciting. Rather than having to wait several years, C Spire customers will have access to these advanced services starting within months,” says Technology analyst Kagan.

This has to do with C Spire’s move into ultra high speed One Gigabit per second Internet service which they are in the process of installing and rolling out now. This is the wire line information superhighway that all these advanced services will ride on.

“Over this new high speed Internet I expect to see 'smart home' services like home automation, security, monitoring, digital HD television, IP home phone services, home automation, security and monitoring services. And that is just to start the ball rolling,” says Tech analyst Kagan.

“C Spire customers will be light years ahead of most markets around the country,” says Principle analyst Kagan.

Users will be able to do things like adjust their thermostat or turn lights on and off either from inside the home on the control panel or from their smartphone anywhere they happen to be.

This is an all-digital IP based suite of services. This is another example of how C Spire, a wireless company is expanding and moving into the wire line space as well.

Users will be able to control their home from a variety of devices including an in-home Honeywell control panel, any web enabled device, PC, tablet or smartphone using the Apple iOS or Android operating system.
