Mexican TV Is Interfering with Rural Broadband in California

Across the country, 41 percent of Indigenous peoples living on reservations don’t have access to fixed high-speed internet, according to the Federal Communications Commission’s most recent report. Indigenous peoples living in rural areas are even worse off, with 68 percent lacking access to broadband. Some issues are basically universal: Reservations are less-densely populated, and as sovereign nations, telecom companies would need to negotiate with each tribe individually. But certain tribes face unexpected challenges that go beyond the typical. – Kaleigh Rogers, MOTHERBOARD http://ift.tt/2hmIMvo
