“Our goal is to provide broadband access to our entire county,” Cameron County Judge Eddie Treviño Jr said. “You have to pick strategic locations, and that's what we're trying to do with these first four — but there's a lot more to get done. We're trying to impact as many people as we can."

Officials say a third groundbreaking could be held in May 2024.
