LUS Fiber puts Lafayette on Top for Fastest Internet in the World

 

LAFAYETTE, La. – (December 15, 2014) LUS Fiber has once again put Lafayette in the spotlight – this time on a global level.  Lafayette was recently named as having the fastest home Internet in the world, according to Open Technology Institute’s report, “2014 Speed Leaders for Home Broadband.”  LUS Fiber’s Gig connection, with equal upload and download speeds, puts the Hub City on par with world cities like Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

 “This is great news for Lafayette,” said Joey Durel, Lafayette City-Parish President. “As we continue to gain national and global recognition for our technological advancements due to our fiber optic network, we are setting the stage for Lafayette to create more and more new, high paying jobs. It’s great for the people of our community to see what we have accomplished and how we are topping lists with cities around the globe. This is a success for all of Lafayette.”

 Lafayette is tied for first place for fastest Internet with only six other cities from around the world and only three cities in North America – Chattanooga, TN, Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.

 “LUS Fiber’s Gigabit home service sets our system amongst the most robust in the country – and now the world!” said Terry Huval, Director of LUS Fiber. “This is another feather in Lafayette’s cap brought about because the citizens of our city voted to create this system.”

 While many communities nationwide are left to purchase Internet service from telephone or cable providers that rely heavily on existing copper infrastructure, LUS Fiber uses fiber-to-the-premise technology which transmits data using light pulses through glass tubing or optical fiber. Fiber that runs from the equipment all the way to a customer’s home or premise and allows symmetrical speeds of 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps), making it far superior and faster.

LUS Fiber Announces first official LUS Fiber Neighborhood

 

(November 12, 2014- Lafayette, LA) LUS Fiber and Southern Lifestyle Developments have teamed up to announce Cottages on the Green as the first official LUS Fiber Neighborhood – a neighborhood where the developer has chosen to install LUS Fiber as part of the construction of the new development.

 Cottages on the Green, a traditional residential community in the heart of Lafayette is completely pre-wired with LUS Fiber's 100% high-speed fiber optics. As the first LUS Fiber Neighborhood, residents can enjoy a traditional neighborhood with access to symmetrical gigabit Internet, high quality HD video, and crystal clear phone technology of the future.

 “Robert Daigle continues to support the Lafayette community and we’re glad to have teamed up in this important venture. With his vision and progressive leadership in developing so many distinguished developments in Lafayette, this will be a very successful partnership for LUS Fiber and Southern Lifestyle Development,” said Terry Huval, Director of LUS Fiber.

 LUS Fiber and developers are coming together to create neighborhoods that offer every homeowner with next-generation technology that meets today’s digital lifestyle. LUS Fiber Neighborhoods are constructed with fiber conduit and cables already in place. This differs from fiber installation in existing neighborhoods where trench work or area lines need to be installed. By using this approach, the surface quality of the new homeowner’s property is maintained, with the added benefit of accelerated installation time. Internet, video and phone services are then more quickly made available to these homeowners for a move-in ready experience.

 “Southern Lifestyle Development is proud to partner with LUS Fiber in Cottages on the Green and other upcoming developments,” Robert Daigle of Southern Lifestyle Development said. “Having this state-of-the-art technology live in our communities before the first home is occupied will provide our homebuilders and their customers with valuable options unavailable in many other developments.”

 Bringing fiber optics to the residents and businesses of Lafayette continues to provide benefits across the board.  High tech companies have cited fiber as one of the reasons they moved to Lafayette, thus creating new jobs. In addition, recent studies have shown that residential properties with fiber access contribute to increased home values.

 “Our 21st century technology for Lafayette residents continues to spark job growth and to create educational opportunities here at home,” said Joey Durel, Lafayette City-Parish President. “Demand for beautiful homes in residential communities such as Cottages on the Green increased because new high-tech companies are relocating to Lafayette for our fiber technology, creating new job growth within our city.”

LUS Fiber Adds Children’s French-language Channel


(August 6, 2014- Lafayette, Louisiana) LUS Fiber has teamed with TiVi5MONDE Kids to launch America’s first French-language channel devoted solely to children’s programming in Lafayette.

“It’s important to encourage youth to embrace our French heritage,” explained Terry Huval, Director, LUS Fiber. “This is why LUS Fiber sought out to be one of the first cable companies to host this channel.”
