The Colorado Broadband Office designates a significant portion of the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation as an unserved area for internet service, which is defined as those areas that have download speeds of 5 megabits per second or fewer, or areas with no reported existing service at all. In a year that nearly every activity possible was moved online, the lack of access to broadband internet exacerbated inequities for tribal communities. In the third episode of our four-part series examining the COVID-19 response for tribes, learn about what tribal leaders in Southwest Colorado are doing to expand broadband access for their members.
