Are you tired of 20-minute downloads, buffering, and inability to stream more than one thing at a time? The problem is that Natchitoches Parish lacks adequate internet access.

The Natchitoches Parish School Board’s newly formed Broadband Commission is working toward closing the gap. But your immediate help is needed to receive funding to bring the infrastructure for high-speed broadband to your house.

What do you need to do?

Every Parish resident with existing internet access needs to go online using their home laptop or desktop and take the speed test found here:

If your home is without an internet connection, please use the red button while on your mobile device from anywhere to list your address as “no available service.”

This can be done during the times you normally surf the internet (typically 5-9 PM) and can be done as many times as you want.


***Opportunity closes January 31***

The data being collected will be used to determine the level of funding Natchitoches Parish will receive. Your participation will help prove that Natchitoches Parish is lacking adequate digital infrastructure. The more funding that can be acquired based on the collected data means the School Board will be able to bring high speed broadband to a greater number of homes throughout the Parish.
