Navajo Nation Surveyed To Determine Future Cell Phone And Internet Services

Window Rock Unified School District #8

Navajo tribal members have been asked to take a survey about internet access and cellular service on the reservation. The Farmington Daily Times reports an ad hoc group comprised of tribal government employees and technology professionals is conducting the survey.

The responses will be used to develop a strategic broadband plan for the Navajo Nation.

Magellan Advisors CEO Courtney Violette said the goal is to design a network capable of delivering a minimum of 25 megabits per second to every person on the Navajo Nation.

The Federal Communications Commission's definition for broadband is a minimum of 25 megabits download and three megabits upload.
