image

The Navajo Nation Broadband Office (NNBBO) was established to provide the Navajo Nation Residents with access to affordable high-speed broadband connectivity by developing a comprehensive strategic broadband plan for the Navajo Nation and working with the Navajo Nation and outside vendors to achieve broadband initiatives. The Navajo Nation's Telecommunication Regulatory Commission will assist the NNBBO with the development of proposed laws, regulations, policies, and procedures that will govern how the Office will manage and oversee current and future broadband infrastructure projects that will facilitate the Navajo Nation's control over it's broadband goals. The NNBBO will represent the Navajo Nation government’s best interests in negotiating with developers seeking to provide broadband services in the Navajo Nation by; centralizing and streamlining the planning, actively seeking funding, serving as the sole conduit of information regarding funds for broadband infrastructure projects in the Navajo Nation: including but not limited to maps, access points, connection speeds, rights-of-way, and lease and connection rates for all existing and future broadband infrastructure projects in the Navajo Nation. The NNBBO may serve as a co-designee on grants for the development of broadband infrastructure projects on the Navajo Nation by entities within, owned, and/or controlled by the Navajo Nation government.
