Last week, LUS Director of Utilities Terry Huval revealed for the first time some of the financial information for LUSFiber. The revealed information showed positive trends for Lafayette’s still relatively new fiber initiative.

Today, Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel stopped by “Mornings with Ken and Bernie” for his weekly “Lafayette Live” segment to talk a little more about LUSFiber as well as share some exciting details about what Lafayette citizens can expect in the future.

Durel expanded on last week’s positives signs of growth by discussing the market share numbers LUSFiber has gained since entering the market in 2009.

Now that we’re showing it’s cash positive for the second year in a row it’s time to announce that we have a third of the market. – Joey Durel

The exciting revelations did not end with the announcement of LUSFiber capturing a third of Lafayette’s market. City-Parish President Durel also revealed that LUSFiber will soon be offering peer-to-peer gigabit connectivity, an incredible technological feet that Durel says that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world.

In the not to distance future I’ll be going to a meeting to speak on a panel to discuss the gigabit community that Lafayette is; I’ve got meetings set up with two national media outlets and the Vice-President of Google in charge of their entire fiber initiative. That’s the one thing I’m most excited about because I think there are opportunities for organizations like Google to partner up with LUSFiber to use us as a test bed for things they’re doing as well as connecting us to their gigabit community. We can be part of an elite little group of cities to test what can be done with gigabit speeds. Google can play a roll in that. – Joey Durel
