"Future coming fast for NK tribe"

"Future coming fast for NK tribe"

"The Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe's reservation, near the remote northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula, will be one of the first areas to be fully connected to the county's ultra-fast Internet line. The U.S. Agriculture Department's rural development division gave the tribe $498,503 to join the reservation to the publicly owned fiber-optic backbone built by the Kitsap Public Utility District."

This is a good article that goes into a fair amount of detail as to how the S'Klallam Tribe will use the connection as well as their plans for last mile access for all of their member once this backbone is operational.
