The Texas Broadband Development Office (BDO) is hosting two more public meetings—this time virtual for those who missed their regional in-person ones. These conversations will help shape opportunities for Texans to access, afford, and use the internet in ways that increase education, health, economic opportunity, and quality of life for communities. The meetings are open to all.
Libraries: This is a great opportunity for you to share your perspective on connectivity challenges and to encourage the communities your serve to attend as well.
Here’s instructions for how to join the meetings from the BDO:
Last week, the Texas Broadband Development Office wrapped up a series of public meetings in Midland, but there are still opportunities for you to share feedback with our office. We will be hosting two virtual statewide public meetings for residents who were unable to attend the in-person meetings. These meetings will have the same format as the in-person meetings where we heard from more than 1,000 Texans.
Also, we’re still accepting responses to our Texas Digital Opportunity Public Survey to identify the digital opportunity barriers affecting Texas households. Widespread input will ensure the state develops an inclusive plan that addresses the digital opportunity needs of all Texans. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Mandarin. PDF versions in English and Spanish also are available. The survey closes Aug. 31. We hope to hear from as many Texans as possible. Please take advantage of these opportunities and encourage participation by sharing our information with others in your network.
