Sustainable Broadband Adoption through Training for Hispanic Adults
According to studies, only approximately 20 percent of primarily Spanish-speaking residents subscribe to broadband services in the home. To engage the Hispanic and English-as-a-Second-Language populations, as well as improve adoption rates in the Greater Houston, Beaumont, and San Antonio areas, the Mexican Institute of Greater Houston proposes to create a broadband outreach and training program targeting Hispanic and minority communities. The project plans to utilize its network of over 100 existing community centers, many located at K-12 public schools in the region, to conduct technology training sessions in Spanish for students and their families.
