Using data from the FCC and the Census 2000, this study investigates the influences of race, income, ethnic composition and educational attainment on the supply of broadband services across the state of Texas during the period December 1999 to December 2001. The principal goal of this research is to determine if there is evidence of a broadband deployment "divide", and if so, to determine if it is expanding or closing. The model tested controls for demand factors, supply factors, and any spatial dependencies that may exist among neighboring ZIP codes. The study finds that ZIP codes with higher percentages of non-white and Hispanic households have higher deployment rates than ZIP codes with higher percentages of white households. It also finds that urban areas have a slightly higher deployment rate than rural areas. The findings of this study on the scope and scale of the market-driven deployment suggest that demand-oriented public policy initiatives may be appropriate, while there appears to be no justification for supply-oriented initiatives
