Fiber To Home Project Updates

The Red Cliff Tribe is installing 80 miles of fiber optic cable in Gaa-Miskwaabikaang (Red Cliff Reservation) as part of an $8 million grant from the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA). The Fiber To Home Project will bring qualifying broadband service and high-speed internet to all tribal homes, government programs, and businesses within Red Cliff tribal jurisdiction. This also includes tribal member households off the reservation in the neighboring Town of Russell and tribal member households within the Belanger Settlement. Fiber installation is estimated to be complete in Spring 2025, with service expected to begin and be available in August of 2025. See news release and more details here.

Fiber To Home Project updates and information will be posted on this page, in the weekly Miisaninawiind newsletter, and through the Tribe's Facebook page. Updates will include estimated dates and locations so community members can expect when work will be done on / near their homes.
