LUS Fiber, the telecommunications division of Lafayette Utilities System operating the only community-owned fiber-to-the-premise network in the state of Louisiana, announced that 1 Gigabit service is now available in the Hub City.
This ultra high-speed fiber optic connection is ranked with the fastest available worldwide. LUS Fiber operates one of the nation’s largest municipal fiber-to-the-premise networks utilizing the only technology capable of delivering symmetrical speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second (or 1,000 Megabits per second) to the end user. 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.
