We specialize in providing services to underserved rural communites.
Tribal Communications, LLC (TC) is a consulting group and internet service provider (ISP) that specializes in providing broadband and wireless services to underserved and rural Native American communities.
We strive to enable communities to build their own infrastructure, gain access to government-sponsored financial programs geared towards infrastructure and broadband services, install a future-proof network that can be easily maintained, and have access to ISP partnership opportunities. TC creates custom broadband and wireless solutions based on related experience and industry best practices.
A partnership with Tribal Communications will result in your tribe’s own advanced telecom network, job opportunities for your tribal members, and a friendly advocate for the cultivation of opportunities derived from your advanced telecom network.
We customize your broadband and wireless services to fit your communities needs. And more importantly, we are here to help because you are the creators, builders, and workers that make it your own.
Why should your community create an ISP?
With broadband, there is no one size fits all solution, however, local ownership of the network should be a goal for most communities. The digital divide in our nation comes down to two main factors; economics and geographical scale. Rural and underserved communities are costly to serve and maintain for large ISPs which does not provide much incentive for them to cover those communities.
The solution to the digital divide in underserved communities is locally owned and served ISPs.
We offer a multitude of services to fit your needs. Check out some of our specialities and let us know if there's any other service you might need.
