Lafayette Votes For Municipal Fiber Network [10:38 pm]

Voters say ‘yes’ to fiber [via Slashdot]

Saturday’s vote authorizes Lafayette Utilities System to sell up to $125 million in bonds for a fiber to the home and business project. It will involve extending fiber optics cable down every city street, then offering residents and businesses the option of receiving high-speed Internet, telephone and/or cable TV service through LUS. City officials said they believe it can offer those services at lower prices than incumbents such as BellSouth and Cox Communications.

Also, Voters approve citywide fiber project
