TOHONO O'ODHAM UTILITY AUTHORITY
Tohono O'odham will provide fiber to the home and broadband wireless hot-spot capabilities further enhancing the existing broadband base and creating job opportunities within the Tribal area. This last-mile project is synergistic with the recently awarded middle-mile project (Award AZ1108-B40). Both the middle-mile project and the last mile project are integral parts of the total broadband soluiton for the Tohono O'odham Utility Authority (TOUA). The middle-mile grant allows TOUA to buildd a strong high-speed transport network that will interconnect all last-mile nodes proposed in this last mile application. This project will economically extend broadband wireless service to 50+ predominately rural areas with only dial up services today.
