Highlights of Broadband Projects in Texas
  • In 2016 the nonprofit EducationSuperHighway partnered with the state to upgrade Internet access in public school classrooms across Texas. EducationSuperHighway has been working with state and school district leaders to “ensure that all students have the Internet speeds they need for a 21st century education.”
  • “Learning is no longer limited by bricks and mortar – it is expanded exponentially by bytes and bandwidth,” Gov. Greg Abbott said, in announcing the partnership. “Expanding technology in our classrooms will allow Texas to meet future workforce needs, help teachers build a pipeline of qualified graduates, and support our students in their efforts to learn without limits. Every single child deserves access to quality education, and with the expanded use of technology in the classroom, that opportunity will be available to all Texas students.”
