Indigenous Connectivity

On average, Tribal communities have some of the lowest rates of broadband availability. Native Nations face specific challenges when it comes to broadband deployment and planning, including but not limited to the physical challenges of deployment in remote communities, lack of access to spectrum, and lack of competition. 


There are also many success stories of Tribal communities implementing creative and tenacious projects to connect their communities, and ultimately leveraging broadband as a means of sovereignty and self-determination. The following resources provide an overview of the state of Indigenous connectivity and the challenges and opportunities for progress.
