The growth of high-speed mobile and wireless technology is revolutionizing our way of life in Lubbock – one family farm, one ranch, and one small business at a time. With new services, products and apps being introduced almost daily, these changes show no sign of slowing down – and that’s a good thing! Wireless app developers and start up businesses are creating new jobs in Lubbock, while businesses that use wireless technology to run more efficiently are expanding.In continuing to seize opportunities, we must preserve a regulatory environment that encourages investment, growth and innovation. Please join Lubbock’s agricultural leaders, policy makers and business community for a discussion of how regulation of the wireless sector will steer future economic opportunities in Texas.
