WINDTHORST, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture will provide more than $26 million in loans to a North Texas company to improve broadband service for rural customers.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Friday announced the Texas funding as part of nearly $40 million to also benefit projects in Minnesota and North Dakota.
