LUS at TechSouth

Heads up:

TechSouth sent out an email blast with nothing in it but the following LUS teaser:

LUS and TechSouth are promoting LUS' booth as a place to find out more about the fiber to the home project.

If you've got an interest (and who reading this blog doesn't) you'd be well-served to visit LUS at TechSouth; it's always interesting. Last year they quietly announced in a looping slide show what has turned out to be a cornerstone of the project: full peer-to-peer bandwidth between subscribers; aka intranet speeds. That item, which means that every subscriber will be able to communicate with every other subscriber at the full available speed of the intranet, is a huge plus for both the digital divide and the entrepreneurial hopes for the local project.

Expect to be able to glean interesting details by talking directly to the folks who'll be running the project.

Oh, and hey: TechSouth is worth visiting for a myriad of other reasons. It's about time for a post.....

Lagniappe: Bop on over to the TechSouth site and scroll to the bottom. There you'll find an unexpected sight: LUS, Cox, and AT&T all lined up, and sharing a common banner... :-)
