Expanding Broadband across Louisiana
Louisiana Telecommunications Association, established 65 years ago, is the premier association representing the nineteen independent, community-based telecommunications companies that are leading innovation in rural Louisiana cities and areas. LTA advocates on behalf of its members in the legislative and regulatory arenas; and it provides training and development, publications and industry events, and an array of employee benefit programs. In an era of exploding technology, deregulation and marketplace competition, LTA's members have formed an Alliance leading the IP evolution for rural consumers, delivering technologies that make rural communities vibrant places in which to live and do business. Because of their efforts, rural Louisiana is fertile ground for innovation in economic development and commerce, education, health care, government services, security and smart energy use.
