Located only an hour from Austin, the Silicon Valley of Texas, Rockdale has not been lost on the technological revolution of the 1990s. Three Internet Service Providers bring the World Wide Web to Rockdale businesses and residents, including the options of using high-speed cable modems or ISDN lines.
Many Rockdale businesses have incorporated Websites into their marketing efforts. Future upgrades in the technology infrastructure, including planned fiberoptic lines, will bring yet more E-commerce capabilities.
Rockdale schools have received over $5 million in telecommunications grants, and proudly boast that its campuses are "wired" with the latest technology.
Richards Memorial Hospital has been one of the first rural hospitals to use "tele-medicine" in which local patients can consult via mini-cameras and television monitors to top doctors in the metropolitan areas.
