Broadband Development Office Invites All Texans to Complete Public Survey
Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced that his agency ’ s Broadband Development Office ( BDO ) is asking the public for input on internet accessibility , affordability and usage . BDO will use the Digital Opportunity Plan : Public Survey , to develop a Texas Digital Opportunity Plan , which is required to draw down federal funding for connecting Texans to reliable , high-speed internet .
The survey launched on April 20 , 2023 and will be remain open for approximately two months .
“ Access to reliable , high-speed internet as a means of advancing education , training , employment opportunities , health care and delivery of essential services is critical to the future of our state ,” Hegar said . “ But we know that we can ’ t do this without partners in the regions and the communities that need this service the most . Your input , passion and local knowledge will help us ensure the Texas Digital Opportunity Plan establishes a clear roadmap to bridge the digital divide and promote digital opportunities for all Texans .”
