A new wireless broadband service will soon cover the Crow Creek reservation.
The Crow Creek Sioux Tribe on Friday announced that Native American Telecom will operate a 4G LTE service in the reservation in central South Dakota.
Crow Creek Chairman Brandon Sazue says the move is a "historic" step in the tribe's embrace of new technology. Sazue says people living in the reservation often find themselves without access to various basic necessities that people in the rest of the country take for granted including communications services.
Native American Telecom is a tribally-owned telecommunications company. It provides fixed broadband and telephone service to more than 150 customers in the Fort Thompson community on the Crow Creek reservation.
The 400-square-mile reservation is located about 26 miles northwest of Chamberlain.
