You are invited to join us for a Tribal Outreach Event to share information regarding the recently announced FCC 2.5 GHz Spectrum Tribal Priority Window. The deployment of broadband on tribal lands is critical to effectively determine the tribal leadership approach. In this 1.5 day event we will review the FCC 2.5 GHz application process, buildout requirements, as well as hear from several Washington State tribes what they have done to build broadband networks, how they are utilizing their infrastructure, how acquiring spectrum will enhance their networks, as well as potential funding sources.
When: Thursday, February 27th 8:30AM-5PM & Friday, February 28th 8:30AM-12:00PM
Where: Red Wind Casino, Nisqually Tribe 12819 Yelm Hwy SE, Olympia, WA 98513
