Texas submits multi-year plan for future broadband expansion
On Aug. 28, the Texas Broadband Development Office submitted its Five-Year Action Plan for Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment Program implementation to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
The plan provides a vision for the future of broadband in Texas and outlines key steps the state will take to help close the digital divide and achieve universal broadband access.
In June, we reported that Texas was the recipient of the largest allocation of federal dollars from the BEAD program, receiving $3.3 billion.
The development of a five-year implementation plan for achieving the state’s vision for BEAD is just one requirement for participating in the federal program.
The 131-page document was developed in collaboration with key stakeholders across the state, including Texas 2036.
