Brazos County has employed a consulting agency in hopes of receiving a share of the $3.3 billion of federal funding given to Texas to extend broadband protection throughout the state.
County Decide Duane Peters says the maps that the state is utilizing to doll out the funding are inaccurate.
“Based on their maps, we had loads of protection on the market that was enough,” Peters stated. “I reside out within the county and I do know that’s not correct.”
Peters says the county is open to sharing outcomes of the research with each surrounding counties and the non-public sector.
“Apparently there’s a few of that cash that the non-public operators are going to go after,” Peters stated. “They’re going to need to have the ability to try that info, and I don’t suppose there can be an issue with that. In the end what we would like is the residents of Brazos County to have the most effective web service we are able to get.”
Based on Peters, the discoveries of the consulting agency don’t align with the state’s maps.
