Texas Broadband Development Office - Seeking Public Comment


The BDO developed the Initial Proposal for the federal Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program using comprehensive engagement and feedback from local governments, community-based organizations, community anchor institutions, industry and residents lacking a reliable, affordable high-speed internet connection, including the contributions from the working groups and task forces.


Texas has been allocated $3.3 billion to bring last-mile connectivity to unserved and underserved households across the state. The BDO has been planning for efficient use of this funding through the development of the Initial Proposal.


The BDO is accepting public comment on the Initial Proposal through Dec. 4, 2023. The public comment process is open to all Texans, and the BDO encourages residents, local governments, community-based organizations and others to provide feedback. To read the Initial Proposal, Volumes 1 and 2, and provide comments, please use this form.
