Texas Broadband Development Office – TBDO Overview Page
The Broadband Development Office (BDO), operated by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, awards grants, low-interest loans and other financial incentives to successful applicants for the purpose of expanding access to and adoption of reliable internet service. The BDO developed the Texas Broadband Development Map in accordance with Government Code Section 490I.0105 and will make updates at least once a year.
Texas Broadband Development Map – Interactive Map Link
The Texas Comptroller and the BDO request geospatial location information from internet service providers (ISPs) in Texas for the purpose of identifying where broadband service does exist and where it does not. The Texas Broadband Development Map divides the state into eligible and ineligible areas for funding, based on the proportion of served locations and prior federal funding commitments. Those ISPs who do not submit the requested data may not participate in the Broadband Development Program administered by the BDO. To learn more about the program, please visit BroadbandForTexas.com.
The purpose of the map is to visually illustrate the current state of digital access in Texas and be used as a tool to assist the BDO to close the digital divide between those areas that have broadband service (25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speeds) and those areas that do not.
