What can we do for you?
We work with the Southern Ute Indian Tribe (SUIT) and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe (UMUT), as well as the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs (CCIA), local entities and industry partners to support connectivity on tribal lands.
We are committed to supporting the Tribes' broadband planning and deployment efforts. Our experience working with local and regional governments on strategic broadband planning helps us provide that same support to the Tribes. These strategic planning efforts can enhance economic development, improve distance learning opportunities, promote inter-jurisdictional communication, and improve health care delivery and to meet requests for better access to the breadth of services available over broadband.
Completed regional plans and RFP examples from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Broadband Program can help guide tribal entities in their strategic planning efforts.
Tribal leaders can play an important role in enabling broadband access for their community members. This can include digital skills training, fiber-to-the-home broadband networks, and everything in between.
