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.
The Broadband Program is working to find ways for everyone to experience digital inclusion by moving toward:
- Affordable, robust broadband internet service
- Internet-enabled devices that meet the needs of the user
- Access to digital literacy training
- Quality technical support
- Applications and online content designed to enable and encourage self-sufficiency, participation, and collaboration
