As Morehouse Parish moves forward in economic development and education, competitive high-speed internet access has developed throughout the parish. Service availability provides an additional selling point for people and companies seeking rural locations.

NortheastTel of Collinston is a local family-owned business focusing on its customers and the community. Starting as a rural telephone company in 1946, the company has grown to provide internet access with fiber networks across large areas of the parish. They offer gigabit internet in their service area and manage IT business services.

“The need for increased broadband speeds will only continue to grow, and NortheastTel is committed to keeping up with those demands and providing our customers with the services they need, now and in the future. We continue to identify areas for expansion, adding new areas and services as needs and opportunities arise.”
