    SMITH BAGLEY, INC., URGES FCC TO GIVE PRIORITY TO IMPROVING BROADBAND DEPLOYMENT ON TRIBAL LANDS

    On behalf of Smith Bagley, Inc. (SBI), LLGS filed REPLY COMMENTS in an FCC proceeding examining whether broadband services are being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely manner. SBI presented data and analysis showing that broadband deployment on Tribal lands falls far short of this “reasonable and timely” standard. SBI encouraged the FCC to take steps to remove barriers to infrastructure investment, and to promote competition on Tribal lands, by establishing a targeted Tribal high-cost universal service mechanism and by making Tribal Lifeline support available exclusively to facilities-based carriers.
