Loop business owners laud fiber optic cables

The Associated PressJuly 16, 2014 

— Business owners along the Delmar Loop in University City and St. Louis say the installation of fiber optic cables will have a big impact on businesses in the area.

The cables are part of the Loop trolley project. The trolley itself won't be in place until 2016, but KMOX Radio (http://cbsloc.al/1tNMcKt ) reports that the cables will be in place earlier, allowing restaurants, offices and other businesses to offer the latest in high-speed internet technology.

Building owner John Mathews says the technology will help draw high-capacity data users to the Loop. Cafe owner Patrick Liburto says that could help attract start-up companies, too.
