In times of crisis, reliable information is of critical importance. People need to inform others of their status. Rescue & relief efforts need to be coordinated. Internet usage skyrockets.

That means they're away from home wi fi, and desktop computers. Mobile devices become their sole tool of communication. That means lots of data usage. We all know what it's like to get that text that we're over on our data plan. That's just one more thing Louisiana folks don't need. AT&T has announced Louisiana customers affected by the flood will be credited for any overages occurring between August 14th & 28th, 2016. You can go to for more information.
