LUS Fiber has an even faster Internet offering for residential customers. The municipal telecom provider will begin taking orders for Internet service at symmetrical upload and download speeds of 100 megabites per second starting today. It will be sold at a price of $199.95 a month.
Until now, LUS Fiber's 100 Mbps service has only been offered to commercial customers, at the same $199.95 a month rate. LUS' residential customers' speeds have been maxed at 50 Mbps, although they could reach speeds up to 100 Mbps through a peer to peer connection (communication between two local LUS customers). LUS Director Terry Huval says the company has received "a number of requests" to expand the 100 Mbps service to residential customers. He adds LUS Fiber continues to be pleasantly surprised by the higher levels of service being sought by the average residential and commercial customers. "The level of service [being sold] is higher than we expected," he says, "which is very positive."
