Governor Perry to Bring High Speed Internet To Rural Texas

Dozens of rural communities in Texas will be getting high-speed internet service soon. Governor Rick Perry stopped in New Deal Wednesday, as part of his tour to promote the service.

71 of the state's smallest rural communities will get high-speed internet service, through the telecommunications reform legislation Perry signed last year. Perry said, It gives them the opportunity to share with that innovation, share the economic prosperity and I might add if we had it in by this weekend, they could stream the girls winning the regional championship at Canyon."

The rural internet access is part of Senate Bill 5. AT&T expects to complete its roll out by the end of the year.
