About Indigenous Connectivity Summit

Indigenous communities are among the most underserved in terms of Internet access throughout North America. The Internet Society works with communities to find and implement sustainable solutions that meet their unique connectivity needs.

Each year, the community-led Indigenous Connectivity Summit brings together Indigenous leaders, community members, community network operators, Internet service providers, researchers and policy makers with a common goal: connecting Indigenous communities to fast, affordable and sustainable Internet.
