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.
