When solving the digital divide, it’s time to lose the Fiber-Only mentality.

When solving the digital divide, it’s time to lose the Fiber-Only mentality.

Should a fiber optic deployment strategy be part of an overall digital inclusive community plan? Absolutely. It’s one component out of many that should be considered. But that doesn’t mean fiber to the home is a necessity, nor does it mean that fiber is the end-all-be-all solution for solving the problem of the digital divide.

Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez

We are extremely proud to be the engineering, integration, and support partner for this amazing project!

I wanted to share with you a short video that gives a great overview of the City of Pharr and PSJA ISD Community broadband project!

For the past two years, the City of Pharr, PSJA ISD, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas have been working closely together towards closing the digital divide gap in our community and also in developing a model program that has the ability to be replicated in other mid-sized rural cities. Through external partners like BBVA Bank, we have been able to commission a financial feasibility and impact study, along with a pilot program rollout involving 50 households located in the southern portion of Pharr.

There are many in our community who still lack access to a basic internet connection and as we know, everything from education, learning, managing bills, applying for jobs, working, and our economy revolve around the internet. I am proud to support this initiative together with my colleagues, our partners, and our PSJA ISD family to ensure that all our families have access to this vital technology. We will continue exploring ways in which to provide internet for our Pharr families.
