Mississippi PSC rolls out first list of meetings about lack of reliable internet and cell service

Mississippi northern district public service commissioner Brandon Presley released information Wednesday on the first meetings to discuss Mississippi’s lack of reliable internet and phone service.

His statement, released on his Facebook, had this to say on the details and how to get involved:

“Rural Mississippi has an infrastructure crisis in the lack of cellular telephone service and high-speed internet service. Mississippians are sick and tired of paying for a service that doesn’t work or being told that providers have no intention of serving their areas. That is unacceptable to me and with the help of these citizen task forces, we are going to highlight this problem and demand answers. This is the first wave of meetings that we have scheduled. Be on the lookout for your county’s date and time. If you would like to volunteer for your area’s task force call 800-637-7722 or email
