Better Connecting Tribal Lands

By Brad

Via Multichannel News’ John Eggerton, the Senate is set to address closing the digital divide on Native American lands:

The hearing is entitled “Closing the Digital Divide: Connecting Native Nations and Communities to the 21st Century.” The Federal Communications Commission last month took several steps to do just that, including more and better radio service, greater broadband deployment, and resulting improvements in public safety communications and services like remote health and education.

No official information yet on the date of the hearing or the witnesses to appear.
