About 7.4 million people, 1 in 4 Texans, do not have access to high-speed internet service at home, according to a recent study. That translates to 3 in 10 households. The lack of free public service in San Antonio, meanwhile, sends people to their neighborhood H-E-B, branch library, school campus or other locale to find a signal. How can we advocate for those in need? How did this happen? What are the consequences of not acting?
