Navajo Nation Bridges the Digital Divide

Indian Country Today, Posted: Apr 02, 2009

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Interactive video conferencing and distance learning will now become a reality for Navajo students, reports Indian Country Today. High-speed Internet has been almost non-existent in most areas of the Navajo Nation. Conterra Telecom Services, a national broadband services company that specializes in rural areas, has announced the commencement of high-speed wireless network service for the Northeast Arizona Technological Institute of Vocational Education. The network will connect eight high schools located in the Navajo Nation, allowing these sites to offer college-level courses and professional development resources. Through video conferencing, students will be able to take classes from all over the world.
