LUS Fiber To Be Featured on NBC’s ‘Rock Center’

LUS Fiber
Lafayette Utilities System

Lafayette is getting more national attention. This time LUS Fiber will be featured on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams with the episode airing later this month or early April.

“This kind of publicity has brought credibility and respect to Lafayette from all over the country,” City-Parish President Joey Durel said. “You can’t pay for that kind of publicity. For a town our size in south Louisiana to be talked about for something other than just food, festivals and crawfish – which are all good things – is really great.”

The city-run fiber optic network has been a contentious effort, garnering both national acclaim and local controversy.

According to the show’s producer Tom Bettag, “it’s really a story about a community that’s trying to keep jobs coming while making sure it doesn’t get passed by in the future. We’re not trying to make a statement about the success or failure of the fiber project.”
