+ - Lafayette, public fiber vs private fiber->

Submitted by Ponyegg
Ponyegg writes: Ars Technica is reporting that Lafayette's fiber network is up and running despite cable & telco lawsuits

"Lafayette, Louisiana has one of the largest and most successful fiber deployments in the country. Right now, residents can pick up a 50Mbps symmetrical connection for only $57.95 a month. In most cases, the prices are at least 20 percent less than phone and cable companies, and every subscriber gets 100Mbps access within the city's network. Street-level deployment should be complete by July 2010, nine months ahead of schedule.".
