LULAC and Time Warner Cable: Bringing Access to BroadbandDecember 20, 2012
Recently, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) announced that they will be joining efforts with Time Warner Cable (TWC) to help increase access to broadband in Hispanic communities throughout America.
With the help of LULAC’s Empower Hispanic America with Technology initiative, TWC plans to increase the number of technology centers that have free access to broadband, as well as computer equipment. LULAC and TWC identified the technology centers where they will begin the process, which include locations in Lincoln, Nebraska, Youngstown, Ohio, and Laredo & El Paso, Texas.
According to a report by the Hispanic Institute, Hispanics trail behind other U.S. populations in overall Internet access but are among the most avid users of mobile broadband. LULAC and TWC’s partnership will positively impact this growing segment of broadband users.
Broadband access is closely aligned with economic opportunities and a wide range of social benefits, so it is crucial that Hispanics, and Americans everywhere, have access to it
