Weeklies Cover LUS Groundbreaking

The Times of Acadiana covered the recent groundbreaking in its "The Buzz" section and the Independent lent the project some virtual ink in their blog.

The Times has a useful description of the the way the video portion of the service will work:
The headend building is the origination point for all the video programming and will also house the telephone and Internet equipment. A satellite dish farm and tower-mounted antenna array will gather the video signals. All three services -- TV, telephone, Internet -- will be converted to light and distributed to customers across approximately 877 miles of fiber optic cable.
The Ind's take is encapsulated in the post's title: "LUS fiber project starts next week."

Anybody see trucks rolling? Or some of those doorhangers? Inquiring minds want to know.
