Navajo Nation creates new wireless provider on the reservation

The Navajo Nation has formed a company to provide wireless service on the reservation.

The tribe purchased a majority ownership of a Commnet Wireless subsidiary. The new company, NTUA Wireless, will upgrade telecommunication services in the next couple of years.

“This venture with Commnet Wireless will allow us to dramatically improve existing services, while at the same time delivering the latest technology to our customers. As part of the effort, we will develop the communications infrastructure needed to bring the Navajo people many advanced telecommunication services already enjoyed by the majority of the U.S. population," Navajo Tribal Utility Authority general manager Walter Haase said in a press release.
