Oct. 11-12 Broadband Summit in Alexandria cancelled

The LSU AgCenter has announced the cancellation of the Connect My Louisiana Broadband Summit previously scheduled for Oct. 11-12 at the DeWitt Livestock Facility at the Dean Lee Research & Extension Center in Alexandria, La.

The summit will be rescheduled, but no date has been set.

Connect My Louisiana is a broadband Internet education and awareness initiative that shows the value of being connected to the Internet, said Dwight Landreneau, associate vice chancellor of the LSU AgCenter.

The summit was designed to provide further information on the importance of being connected to the Internet.

Residents in 18 Louisiana parishes where broadband is underused or unavailable are learning the value of broadband, high-speed Internet access with help from the LSU AgCenter. The program provides classes designed to introduce residents and business people to broadband resources and to show them how it can be used to improve lives.
