LUS Fiber is now offering the fastest residential internet speed in the state. 

The internet provider announced Tuesday that it will offer speeds of 10 gigabits per second to residential customers for $295.95 per month, according to a release.

LUS Fiber was also the first to offer 1 gbps service in 2012 and 2 gbps service in 2017. Before LUS Fiber launched, the fastest speed available to residents was 50 mbps.

“When we laid out our initial telecommunications infrastructure, we insisted that the lines be 100 percent fiber,” said LUS Fiber director Terry Huval in a statement. “By doing so, LUS Fiber has been able to make monumental leaps, like this one, with natural advancements and upgrades to our system.

“We remain dedicated to maintaining Lafayette’s designation as one of the fastest and most reliable Internet providers in the world. The launch of our 10 Gbps residential Internet keeps Lafayette as one of the elite providers of Internet in the world and is indicative of our continued commitment to provide our customers superior products and services.”

Chad Hollier, owner of local business N2 Solutions, is LUS Fiber’s first customer to purchase the faster speed. 

“Ten Gbps will provide the very best Internet to manage my work and play,” said Hollier. “As a business owner, I need the capability to send and receive large files and video feeds remotely from home. The reliability and speed LUS Fiber offers is important to me and my family’s quality of life. Having America’s fastest Internet will be a game changer for our daily lives.”
