LUBBOCK, Texas – Vexus Fiber, a leading fiber service provider in Louisiana and Texas, announced that it is bringing its 100% fiber-to-the-home network to Lake Charles, Sulphur and Westlake, LA. Vexus will fully fund the network providing access to over 40,000 homes and businesses with symmetrical multi-gigabit speed internet service and more. This marks another expansion for the company and another opportunity for Vexus to bring 100% fiber optic technology to the area offering a choice for telecommunication services.
Vexus plans to begin construction during the first quarter of 2022 with availability to some neighborhoods and businesses in the spring. Full completion of the 100% fiber network is estimated to take about 36 months.
With this network build, Vexus plans to add around 75 construction jobs and 35 to 40 permanent jobs as they plan to open a local storefront in the next year.
Vexus Fiber currently operates fiber-to-the-home networks in Hammond, Covington and Mandeville, Louisiana as well as Lubbock, Amarillo, Wichita Falls, Abilene, and surrounding areas in Texas. The company is also building new networks in Tyler, the Rio Grande Valley and San Angelo, Texas.
The region's expansion is financed through existing Vexus investors, Pamlico Capital and Oak Hill Capital, who have agreed to invest additional equity as part of their ongoing commitment to Vexus' growth and the communities they serve.
