Cable providers are an integral part of their communities, from providing Internet services to schools to supporting local nonprofits.

As information providers, cable is a natural fit with education; in Texas, cable operators provide free video services to more than 4,000 schools and free high-speed Internet to more than 300 community centers across the state.

In addition, industry programs such as “Cable in the Classroom” take advantage of cable content and technology to expand and enhance learning for students, while the “Cable’s Leaders in Learning Awards” recognizes outstanding educators and others at the forefront of innovation in education.

In cities and towns across Texas, local cable operators and their employees make their communities a better place to live. Cable companies not only make financial and in-kind donations to numerous civic and charitable organizations, but employees volunteer thousands of hours of their time each year
