Texarkana residents encouraged to take internet survey


TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) – A Texarkana economic development group is asking for public input regarding internet access.

AR-TX REDI hopes to bring more reliable, high-speed, broadband access to the area. The goal is for everyone in Miller and Bowie Counties to have it. “It’s so important for education, it’s so important for economic development … to have internet access that is affordable for the future,” said
AR-TX REDI volunteer and State Bank Chief Financial Officer Brock McCorkle. 

According to AR-TX REDI, broadband is defined by the FCC as always-on, high-speed internet access that is at least 25 megabits per second (Mbps) downstream to your device and 3 Mbps upstream from your device.
