Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program
The project proposes to construct backhaul infrastructure, access points, and distribution of customer premise equipment directly connecting 25 unserved Alaska Native households with qualifying broadband service at speeds of up to 200/100 Mbps. Additionally, the project will establish Internet connections at critical facilities in the community, including the Tribal Offices, Tribal Court, Meicey Memorial Library and computer lab, and the Health Clinic which will provide a secure location for needed telehealth and telemedicine services in this remote location.
