Earlier today, Cricket announced that it would be the first prepaid carrier to sell the Apple iPhone 5. A few other smaller wireless service providers have since come forward to note that they will also offer the new iPhone. C-Spire, the Mississippi-based carrier that recently launched an LTE network, has confirmed that it will carry the iPhone 5 beginning September 28. Pricing details have not yet been confirmed, nor has the availability of which markets will support LTE service. C-Spire noted earlier this week that its LTE network will first launch in Mississippi, but it will expand to Tennessee and some parts of the Gulf Coast region in Alabama and Florida.
Two other regional carriers also added their name to the list of carriers that will offer the iPhone 5. GCI in Alaska and Appalachian Wireless in Kentucky will begin selling the phone on September 28. Like all carriers other than AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, neither company has released any information other than a release date and a confirmation that it will sell the iPhone 5. More details will follow closer to the phone's scheduled launch.source: C Spire, via: Engadget
