WASHINGTON – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today authorized $362,662,934.10 in federal funding over the next decade to maintain, improve, and expand affordable rural broadband to 310,962 unserved homes and businesses in Texas. A list of the recipients by county is attached.

“Access to broadband isn’t just about connecting to the internet.  It’s an issue of safety, of education, and of health for rural Texans,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “I’m grateful to the FCC for recognizing the critical need for broadband in rural areas and for supporting the connectivity of more than 300,000 rural Texas households and businesses.”

Sen. Cornyn has introduced the Eliminate the Digital Divide Act and the ACCESS the Internet Act to provide underserved Texans with greater access to broadband.
