Spirit Communications currently provides voice, data and Internet connections to over 1,100 educational facilities throughout the state. Our flexible solutions enable Spirit to provide all levels of service from one-location private schools to multi-location Colleges and Universities. Spirit fiber has been built to provide access to many schools that are in rural areas that would not be serviceable by any other company; allowing the schools to get all the advantages that most inner city schools receive. See how Spirit Communications is working with PRTC to bring high-speed Internet to rural schools in Charleston, SC.
Educational facilities are utilizing technological advances to better support their student's needs and Spirit Communications can provide the large bandwidth required to access these tools with our expansion of Spirit fiber across the North and South Carolina.
