Please thank your legislator and ask them to keep standing up for community networks

HB789 was voted out of committee today -- without the ban on municipal networks. But we expect the ban to re-emerge as an amendment, on this bill or other bills.

If you called, faxed, or visited your member and the committee, now is a great time to give them a phone call to thank them for supporting the rights of cities and towns to increase broadband for Texas by removing the modifications in Sec. 54.202.

When you call, ask to confirm your member's support in standing up for community networks when this bill and others are brought to the House floor. Please let us know what your member said -- send an email to us at
