Clerk of Court Asks Residents to Take Internet Speed Test to Help Determine Federal Funding

Clerk of Court Eddie Holmes said, “Our Police Jury voted to develop high speed internet in our parish. Please fill out the address and information at the link below. It will help determine federal funding needed for our parish.  This is very important to growth and development in rural parishes. The internet is changing how we work, learn and communicate on a daily basis. Our children will need affordable, high speed, reliable internet.”

The DRA (Delta Regional Authority) region, especially rural areas, lacks adequate digital infrastructure to support access to critical services such as healthcare, distance learning, and remote work. In response to these challenges, DRA has launched the Delta Broadband Mapping Project. Through an innovative online crowd-sourcing platform, DRA has launched this year-long effort to gauge broadband accessibility throughout its eight-state region. DRA needs as many residents as possible to take this internet speed test to develop an accurate representation availability across the 252 counties and parishes.
