BBT is proud to offer 100% fiber connectivity in the communities of Comstock, Langtry, Sanderson, and Sheffield, TX. This allows the residents and businesses to connect to high-performance fiber optic technology and limitless opportunities. BBT’s advanced telecommunications services enable communities to learn and work from home, attend telehealth appointments, and more.
“BBT is very excited about the progress we are making in our communities. Fiber optics is reliable, future-proof, and provides increased security and value,” said Rusty Moore, BBT General Manager and Chief Operations Officer. “Access to high-speed broadband is especially important to rural communities, which we advocate for nationwide. We are proud to help our communities close the digital divide.”
With an eye on prosperity and growth, BBT stays committed to a high-level of strategic investment and economic development in the communities they serve. During the last several years, BBT’s $36MM capital investment has deployed fiber to over 6,000 locations. In recent years, the company has invested $3.5MM into the Presidio Fiber Infrastructure, which will give this community a 100% fiber network as well. This project was designed in phases with some portions completed and the remaining scheduled for completion by end of 2022. BBT continues to explore state and federal funding opportunities to build the critical infrastructure that supplies the economic and social benefits that only fiber can deliver.
Business and economic growth are dependent on fast, reliable connectivity. Health and medical services share information and resources that can be lifesaving. Fiber-fed communications systems deliver information on weather, traffic alerts, and critical safety updates. In addition, a fiber connection is essential for education and border security purposes. BBT is using fiber optic technology to supply long-lasting connectivity and empower digital equity throughout the 25 communities they serve.
