Super fast broadband speeds are no longer just an urban legend. LiveAir Networks is making 1 Gpbs download speeds available to residents in Smithville and La Grange. This quote by Executive Director of Connected Texas, Don Shirley, in the Austin Statesman sums things up:
“To be able to offer 1 gigabit service in any area, let alone a rural community, is a big deal. The technology has advanced to where providers can offer faster broadband to our rural areas and we’re partnering with them to make it happen. These investments help drive the economy and will no doubt benefit our state.”
Smithville is located in Bastrop County which was designated by Connected Texas as the first certified Connected Community in the state. Bastrop County proves that great things can happen when the right folks get together to advance technology goals.
