Delta Broadband Mapping Project
The Delta Regional Authority announced the launch of the Delta Broadband Mapping Project, an initiative aimed at strengthening broadband infrastructure that supports distance learning, telehealth, and remote work. The initiative encourages residents to participate in the free, anonymous, Delta Speed Test. The gathered information will inform and support strategic investments in critical infrastructure that will expand the availability of high-quality internet access across the region. The Delta Speed Test can be taken from any device that has an internet or cellular connection to your home network. The test takes less than one minute to complete, and no personal information will be collected. To participate, please use a device connected to your home internet service and not from a school network while completing the Survey . The purpose is to provide broadband speeds and availability statistics from households throughout Webster Parish. Individuals without internet access at home can travel to a location where internet service is provided to submit the address of a home with no available service. We are encouraging all Webster Parish School Board employees and student households to participate in this mapping project.
