Inadequate telco infrastructure drives cities to build fiber networks

Lafayette's Fiber to the Home project is expected to provide residents and businesses with Internet, cable and telephone services at a low cost.

Salter said cities with fiber networks have experienced economic growth as a result.

"We just think that the ability to move information is where everything is going," he said.

Huval said telecommunications companies have infrastructure with limited capacity.

Fiber will not artificially limit capacity, he said. Residents will be able to choose how they want their fiber.
