Lafayette Pro Fiber Blog exists to provide a daily dose of information to those that support bringing optical fiber to the residents and businesses of Lafayette Parish in Louisiana using the Lafayette Utilities System. More on that in a little bit. The main reason that we’re mentioning this site is because of the post filed yesterday that uses Birmingham’s recent announcement about the XO laptops that they will be receiving to talk about the wider issue of bridging the digital divide. We normally stay fairly quiet on Sundays but thought you just might be interested in this.

It appears that the battle taking place for a fiber optic network is much greater than what can be explained for the purposes of this post. I’ll just recommend that you take a moment and check out how their effort is going.
