Indian Telecom Initiatives (ITI)
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates the nation's telecommunications services, including traditional telephone service, wireless and satellite telecommunications services, cable services, television broadcast, and radio services. The FCC seeks to ensure all Americans, including those living in tribal communities, have access to affordable, quality telecommunications services.
To achieve this goal, the FCC designed the Indian Telecommunications Initiatives (ITI), a comprehensive FCC program that seeks to promote understanding, cooperation, and trust among:
- American Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages,
- Tribal Organizations, the FCC and other government agencies, and
- the telecommunications industry.
Telecom Related Goals
- Increase the telephone penetration rate - the number of people who have telecommunications services - among American Indian tribes and Alaska Native communities.
- Increase telecommunications infrastructure - the installation of telecommunications equipment - necessary to provide telecommunications services.
- Inform consumers in Indian Country about financial support available through federal government programs, including Universal Service discounts.
