Broadband Service in Northern Rio Grande Valley

Through USDA Rural Development’s Broadband Initiatives Program, the Pueblo de San Ildefonso received $632,225 loan and $632,225 Grant for the TewaCom Broadband Initiative (TBI) to expand broadband service in the Northern Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico. This project will be an important part of a regional approach to overcome persistent barriers associated with rural broadband deployment in Northern Rio Grande Valley. San Ildefonso Pueblo is a partner in REDI (Northern New Mexico Regional Economic Development Initiative), which will deploy a regional open network. The network will support the multiple purposes of economic development, education, healthcare, and sustainable energy development funds and will enable the Pueblo to quickly expand its service network to 2,405 households. This project will directly support regional economic development efforts currently being implemented in New Mexico. In addition, jobs will be created by Pueblo de San Ildefonso solar and geothermal energy projects dependent on broadband services.
