Describe the current technological capacity of your community, including any existing Smart services, how they are delivered (i.e. technical infrastructure) and their coverage (i.e. percentage penetration).

The technical infrastructure in each community accommodates wireless networking at 1.5 Mbps. Outbound internet traffic is routed through dual 4,800 baud modes (combined for 9,600 baud) and inbound internet traffic is routed off satellite at up to 384 kbps. Computer access is broadly-based in local offices. All health, educational, policing, small business and Band administrative centers utilize computer-based systems. The majority of these computers are Pentium systems. Approximately 25 percent of the population in each community has used the internet. Regular users account for between 10 and 15 percent of the general population.
