I went by the LUS booth at TechSouth yesterday and had my attention gently directed to a video display that showed LUS fiber providing 100 megs of service in contrast the speeds of various competing technologies. That brought a real smile to my face.
It was also fun to look at the new map of all the fiber buildouts that go beyond the initial wholesale ring. Little black legs reaching into all areas of the city. Lots of the newer legs are for the local school system. I'm told that LUS is gearing up to start stringing fiber for the parish schools now. Apparently Entergy is being difficult about pole attachments but that seems to be being worked out. Slemco is aboard (It's probably no surprise: a locally-owned coop is being cooperative.)
