Internet Access Throughout DeSoto Parish

This week the Administrative Committee of the DeSoto Parish Police Jury discussed ways to bring broadband internet access to all areas of the parish.  Across the state local governments are dealing with expansion of the internet to unreached areas.

Juror Thomas Jones spoke of a company working with the city of Mansfield on internet within the city limits.  Jones said, “There are a lot of buildings and other places in the town and parish that cannot get internet.”  Jones suggested bringing the company helping the city into the discussion of parish wide broadband. 

Broadband expansion in Mansfield is to be paid for by federal grants.  Jones said, “We need to see how to tap into the money that is there now for broadband.”
