GAO: FCC Could Do More for Broadband Expansion on Tribal Lands



In a report released Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could do more to expand broadband access on tribal lands. The GAO offered three recommendations to the FCC, which the agency agreed with.

Currently, there is a significant discrepancy between broadband access on tribal lands and elsewhere in the United States. According to GAO’s 2018 estimates, 35 percent of Americans living on tribal lands do not have access to broadband services–compared to 8 percent of Americans overall.
