WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) announced $675,372,311 in funding to expand high-speed internet access in New Mexico. The investment comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Heinrich helped negotiate and pass into law.
“Expanding access to high-speed internet improves the quality of education our students receive, makes health care more accessible and affordable, strengthens public safety, and grows our economy,” said Heinrich. “Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that I fought hard to pass into law, we are delivering $675 million — one of the largest single investments in broadband in our state’s history — to develop the infrastructure needed to connect New Mexicans in every corner of our state to these vital services.”
