   “Making broadband accessible and affordable for our citizens has been a priority of mine since the day I was elected . Brownsville was considered one of the least connected communities in the United States in 2018 and 2019 , and after more than two years of planning and work , we are about to change that . The middle and last mile infrastructure will enhance our community’s quality of life and create new opportunities for economic development . I look forward to seeing this project propel Brownsville into the future , ” said Mayor Trey Mendez .
