Broadband research in progress
West Feliciana Parish is asking residents of the parish to use the speed test at https://dra.gov/research/broadband-mapping/#speedtest as often as possible.
This will provide an accurate representation of broadband financing. Data is collected on your broadband connection speed and used for a parish map to obtain grants and other support to improve broadband in our community.
Visit http://expressoptimizer.net/projects/DRA/speedtestmap.html to see what speeds have already been reported in the area.
People from other parishes can also participate in the speed tests.
