C Spire debuts LTE pipeline with Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE now and  Samsung Galaxy S III soon
Regional carrier C Spire debuted its new LTE service on Sunday, when it flicked the switch to on in Greenville and McComb, Mississippi. Eventually, the game plan is for C Spire to cover the state with LTE signals from Oxfornd up north all the way down south to Biloxi and Gulfport. C Spire's data plans are unique and require the user to have special data passes for video streaming and tethering.You can buy unlimited video streaming for $30 covering 30 days, $10 for 5 hours or $5 for 2 hours. You can also purchase a pass for 1GB of tethering over 30 days.

What good is offering an LTE pipeline without LTE enabled phones? C Spire is taking care of business on this end as well by offering the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE. We've seen this device for Sprint. It features a 4.3 inch qHD screen with a pixel density of 256ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM and a 32GB capacity microSD slot for storage expansion.An 8MP camera on back captures video in 1080p at 30fps. The 1.3MP front facing shooter handles self portraits and video chat. There is a 1785mAh battery and the side sliding QWERTY keyboard for those who would prefer not to type on glass. Android 4.0.4 is installed. The device will cost $199.99 with a signed two-year pact.

Variety is the spice of life, so you know that C Spire's LTE customers are going to need more of a choice when it comes to 4G handsets. Luckily for them, the carrier agrees and the Samsung Galaxy S III will soon be available.

I wish I could have gotten C-Spire but I don't live in the South so I would be roaming all the time. I love their plans!

Do they have their own network? If so, it looks like they run on CDMA and roam on Sprint and Verizon, anyone have details on this, their site doesn't specify.

Yes and yes, you are correct. But, if you spend more than 50% of your time roaming on other towers, they will kick you off their service, giving you a couple weeks notice to switch to a different carrier.

Requiring special passes for video streaming? Didn't the FCC say that was illegal to charge for?
