The Milam County, Texas Broadband Team has completed its community technology assessment, along with an outside plant audit and radio frequency analysis of available broadband coverage. The results of this assessment can be found by clicking the symbol for each of the sections below. The Solutions sector includes recommended actions the community can implement to improve the broadband and technology ecosystem at a local level. Findings from the outside plant audit and radio frequency analysis can be seen in the interactive map below. It should be noted that much of the assessment was conducted before or at the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic. This worldwide event likely impacted many of the metrics included in this assessment.
Fixed broadband is delivered to a user via several technology platforms including cable, digital subscriber line (DSL) over phone line, fiber optics, and fixed wireless. Fixed broadband is designed for stationary use at a fixed location such as a home, business, or institution. From a location, however, fixed broadband service is often broadcast as a Wi-Fi network to connect nearby devices.
The following map shows where broadband is available in Milam County, along with results from an outside plant audit and radio frequency analysis conducted by engineers from Connected Nation.
