Community Outreach

Alongside the Texas Broadband Listening Tour, the BDO published a survey seeking feedback from Texans about broadband issues in their communities. The surveys were available in both English and Spanish and accessible online, via a toll-free phone number and in paper form at public libraries and at Texas Broadband Listening Tour events. Additionally, surveys were distributed through targeted email and social campaigns to communities throughout the state.

Of the 16,241 public survey respondents:

45 percent

have a wired internet connection at home.


36 percent

reported a lack of high-speed
broadband at their residence.


54  percent

reported that their internet connection is not affordable.

Of the 47 elected official survey respondents:

78 percent

ranked access as the top priority for their community.


49 percent

have a broadband plan in place
or are currently developing one.


11 percent

reported that they have the financial resources necessary to meet their community’s broadband needs.
