KISSIMMEE, Fla., July 12, 12:00 noon — In an effort to serve a growing Hispanic community in Central Florida, KUA.net – the Internet division of the Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) – will be hosting its first-ever Internet users’ group in Spanish on July 19. The Hispanic users’ group meetings, held once each quarter, will be provided free of charge.

“Our research has shown that individuals whose primary language is Spanish have very few Internet resources available to them locally,” said Jef Gray, KUA’s director of information technology. “Our users’ group will provide a forum where questions are answered by professional Internet technicians.”

The users’ group meeting will be held at 7:30 pm on Thursday, July 19, at KUA’s headquarters at 1701 W. Carroll Street in Kissimmee. This first meeting is an opportunity for Internet users to meet KUA.net’s bilingual help desk staff and ask Internet-related questions in an open forum. Participants will enjoy complimentary refreshments, a free KUA.net t-shirt, and door prizes in a fun and informative environment. Reservations are not required and participants do not have to be KUA.net members in order to attend.

For more information, contact KUA.net at (407) 933-7777 or toll-free statewide at (877) 582-7700.

KUA is Florida‘s 7th largest community-owned utility serving 53,000 electric, water and Internet customers in four Central Florida counties. KUA celebrates its 100th year of serving the community in 2001.
