Texas A&M Receives Grant for High-speed Internet
Texas A&M has received a $6.6 million grant for the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program which will allow Texas A&M to have broadband Internet at all 11 universities.
In partnership with many rural telephone and cable companies, the new grant will fund Texas Pipes, which is a fiber optic network capable of supporting up to 40 Gbps. The new grant project will not only help the higher education system, but will also give high-speed Internet access to many communities.
This grant will also help campus police departments by helping them communicate with the Department of Public Safety by making the DPS information available by a shared link therefore cutting the need for costly satellite-based links.
