Program Goals

The Broadband Program works to ensure all residents have the opportunity to thrive in the digital economy. The goal of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Broadband is to empower all residents of the Fort Hall Reservation by offering dependable and affordable broadband internet service. This initiative extends beyond connectivity, including digital literacy training, support, and providing internet-ready devices to enhance the overall opportunities and well-being of the community members.

Limited Internet Access

Residents within the reservation face constraints in accessing the internet, from  healthcare, education, job searching and voting . Recognizing the importance of addressing these constraints, our Broadband Program aims to enhance connectivity, ensuring that our community members can access these essential services and actively participate in various facets of life.

The Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program Grant, administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) within the United States Department of Commerce, focuses on developing and deploying broadband internet on the Fort Hall Reservation.

Digital Divide.

The gap between those who have affordable access, skills, and support to effectively engage online and those who do not. The digital divide disproportionately affects people of color, Tribal lands, households with low incomes, people with disabilities, people in rural areas, and older adults.
