We are pleased that Gov. Greg Abbott has officially identified rural broadband internet expansion as a top priority for the 87th Legislature after the ongoing coronavirus pandemic amplified a disconnect in internet connectivity equality around the state.

Abbott correctly assessed during his State of the State speech Monday night that “broadband access is not a luxury, it is an essential tool that must be available for all Texans.”
