BENTON, La. – A plan to bring high speed internet service to one rural area of Bossier Parish will go under review by a Bossier Parish Police Jury committee after the public body heard a proposal during Wednesday’s meeting.
Police Jury President Jimmy Cochran asked members of the jury’s new Internet Study Committee to discuss the plan which would begin with the installation of a suggested 150- pole located on property just off Linton Cutoff Road in Cypress Creek Ranch subdivision.
Officials from US Wifi, a Monroe-based company, told the jury Wednesday that potential customers within three to four miles of the tower would be able to connect to the high speed service.
If the police jury approves the initial plan and location of the Internet pole, company officials said the service could be available to other rural areas in Bossier Parish.
