Aug 24, 2020 Season 1 Episode 18
Jessica Denson

In this episode of Connected Nation we talk with State Program Director for Connected Nation Texas, Jennifer Harris, and Vice President of GIS Services for Connected Nation, Ashley Hitt, who led a team that recently released new broadband coverage maps for every single county in Texas—if you’re counting that’s 254. 

 Ashley and Jennifer share details on how this was done, what it means for those who need high-speed internet access, and how this model can be replicated in other states and communities to expand broadband access.
