The excitement was palpable at Surf Internet’s ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, May 3, to celebrate 2 Gig fiber-optic services coming to the City of La Porte. All partners involved, including La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership (LEAP), the City of La Porte and Surf Internet celebrated this extraordinary technical advancement for the community. La Porte is the first city in Indiana to experience the upgrade from Surf Internet.
“With multi-gig fiber-optic, the network is faster than the equipment that’s connected to it,” said Gene Crusie, Surf CEO. “It’s no longer, ‘How fast is my download?’ It’s, ‘How many devices can I get in my home? How many connections or how many things can I do over the internet?’ The key is that the internet is no longer the bottleneck for innovation.”
