Bridging the Digital Divide
The City of Dallas recognizes that having access to the internet is critical for families and individuals. While practicing social distancing and dealing with the virtual nature of many businesses and social services, internet access will help families and individuals do a wide range of activities, from schoolwork to job searching to paying bills. The City is working to ensure everyone can remain connected and that those without internet access get access.
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.
