LULAC And Time Warner Cable Bring Broadband Access To Hispanic Communities Across The Country

LULAC and Time Warner Cable (TWC) will join efforts in order to provide Latino communities across the United States access to broadband. Through LULAC’s Empower Hispanic America with Technology initiative, TWC will increase the number of technology centers that currently have computer equipment and free broadband access. The new computer equipment will be installed in LULAC community technology centers located in Lincoln, NE; Youngstown, OH; Laredo and El Paso, TX.

In addition to the computer equipment, TWC is also committing two years of additional of high-speed “Business Class” broadband service for fifteen LULAC technology centers. The labs include the above locations as well as Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton, OH; Corpus Christi and Dallas, TX; and Los Angeles, CA. This effort is enhancing LULAC’s and TWC’s previous partnership, which established LULAC community technology centers in Charlotte, NC; Cincinnati, OH; San Antonio, TX; Kansas City, MO; and Waukesha, WI.

The Empower Hispanic America with Technology initiative increases access to technology, which is not accessible to many low income Hispanic families. Through the partnership with Time Warner Cable, new computer equipment to four sites and free high speed business class broadband to fifteen sites will create digital opportunity for Hispanics nationwide. The technology centers are part of LULAC National Educational Services Centers, Inc. (LNESC) and partner non-profit organizations that serve low income Hispanic communities.

“The technology centers provide a variety of services to the community that include educational programming, computer technology training, and job placement,” said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. “The centers play a key role with delivering resources to students in danger of dropping out of high school or not attending college. We know that the partnership with Time Warner Cable will provide critical access to broadband and technology to our community.”

Over 40 percent of Latino students drop out of high school and only 20 percent of Hispanic students leave high school prepared for college, compared to 40 percent of white students.
