Bridging the Digital Divide
The City of Dallas recognizes that having access to the internet is critical to building a more inclusive, equitable, and resilient community. Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City and its partners have been working diligently to bridge the digital divide comprehensively from access to internet connections, hardware such as home computers, and digital literacy and skills training.
Broadband and Digital Equity Strategic Plan
The City and Dallas Independent School District (DISD) partnered in late 2020 to commission the Broadband and Digital Equity Strategic Plan (Plan) to identify the magnitude of digital equity challenges and broadband gaps, and to develop actionable strategies that could be undertaken by the City and the DISD to help Dallas residents, including student households, to access affordable, high-speed home broadband service—and possess the devices and skills necessary to make fullest use of broadband.
