Event Details

Presentation Summary: Broadband internet is the electricity of the 21st century. It brings growth, prosperity and better quality of life wherever it goes. Yet, according to US Census Bureau estimates, almost half of Native Americans living on tribal lands are still deprived of this utility so essential for prosperity. The extended pandemic has exposed the digital divide like never before and underscored the importance of high-speed internet, whether it is for remote learning, tele-health, or community engagement in compliance with health and safety guidelines. The good news is that Teltech and Nokia have a cost-effective solution available now to bridge the digital divide for tribes. In this webinar, we will share how tribes can benefit from this dedicated internet solution that uses best-in-class broadband wireless technology and funds from the federal government.
