Free drive-in WiFi locations set up throughout Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE - Local officials and community leaders are taking steps to support residents as much as possible during the current health crisis.
According to an announcement Monday, BREC is partnering with community organizer, Emanuel "Boo" Milton to provide free WiFi to locals by way of various drive-in WiFi sites throughout the capital city.
