Depressing Statistic of the Morning.

Tribal lands in the United States have terrestrial broadband penetration rates of about 10 percent, according to the best available data, as cited in the new National Broadband Plan released yesterday. As a point of comparison, the broadband adoption rate among rural Americans more broadly is 50 percent. It's important to keep in mind the possibility that some people living on American Indian reservations in the U.S. don't see a need for broadband. But it's probably a good bet that more than one in 10 of them do.
