Executive Summary

A few years ago, the Tribal College on the Turtle Mountain Reservation had only one computer connected to the Internet, and that connection was via dial-up access. Today, through the NSF grant funding the Tribal Wireless Project, Turtle Mountain and Fort Berthold Reservations in North Dakota and Fort Peck Reservation in Montana now have wireless broadband Internet connectivity. Today, the Motorola Canopy systems at all three Reservations have been in place and performing well. The Tribal Wireless Project is cost-effective and easy to maintain for the Reservation's needs. It has pushed wireless technology to a level never before attained in terms of "First Mile" access.
