Terry Huval and Joey Durel are holding a press conference tomorrow, (Thursday, February 7th) to “announce the first areas in the city to be served by the LUS Fiber project.” The announcement, at 9:00 AM down at City Hall will let all know who will be among the lucky number that will get their fiber first.
The media alert (PDF) that announced the event proudly proclaims:
LUS Fiber (www.lusfiber.com) will deliver state-of-the-art fiber optics to every home and business in the city, including phone, Internet and cable TV services. The system deploys more than 870 miles of fiber optics in a passive optical network using both analog and IP digital video (TV), high-speed Internet and phone that services more than 57,000 homes and businesses within the city of Lafayette.
OK…I’m eager to see the map now. When I get my hands on one I’ll share it here. As I’ve said before, I’m anticipating a larger rather than smaller footprint for the first-stage buildout. That’s what the budget numbers and the dates of their allocations leads me to believe. I’m thinking this will be result in good news for a large percentage of our population.
Tune in Thursday.
And until then…enter your construction sightings on “The Map.”
