Lafayette Becomes a Gigabit City

  • FTTH
LAFAYETTE, LA – “We have raised the bar in order to make our community a place where technology companies want to locate,” says Joey Durel, City-Parish President of Lafayette, Louisiana.

LUS Fiber, the telecommunications division of Lafayette Utilities System, which operates the only community-owned fiber-to-the-premises network in the state of Louisiana, announced that 1 Gbps service - as fast as anywhere in the world - is now available in the Hub City.

LUS Fiber operates one of the nation’s largest municipal FTTH networks. Now businesses in Lafayette will have access to speeds that are roughly 20,000 times faster than dial-up and more than 100 times faster than a typical broadband connection.

Internet speeds in the United States today rank 11th globally - far behind world leaders Japan and South Korea. However, companies such as LUS Fiber, which are focused on propelling their communities forward by providing access to affordable, ultra-high-speed fiber optic connections, give the United States the potential to advance in those rankings.

“Gigabit service from LUS Fiber is one of the most robust Internet offerings on the market today,” says Terry Huval, director of Lafayette Utilities System and LUS Fiber. “We built this community network with a promise to the people of Lafayette that we will work hard to provide them with new opportunities through this unique, state-of-the-art fiber technology…and that’s just what we’ve done.”

“Once again, Lafayette carves out a place among the best in the world,” continues Durel. “Our city is on America’s radar. We have the best food, the most optimistic people, the best festival and the fastest, affordable growing income of all metropolitan areas. And now we are offering the fastest Internet speeds in the world. Our future truly is what we make of it. What a great time to live and work in Lafayette, Louisiana!”
