Century Link could be offered on the Navajo Nation
CROWNPOINT, N.M. — Century link would like to make its way to the Navajo Nation and it’s even proposed by New Mexico Public Regulation Commission Theresa Becenti-Aguilar of District 4.
On Sept 12, she addressed the Navajo Nation Telecommunications Regulatory Commission to discuss rural telecommunications issues the tribe faces.
The commission also said she is working with the Navajo Nation government to develop rural telecom solutions and hopes the NNTRC can assist in these types of projects.
“Collaboration was needed to get the process moving,” she said. “Finally, under my leadership, the possibility of having basic phone service in these rural, rugged areas is drawing near. Addressing the NNTRC pushes the formal process one step further and helps leaders in the Navajo Nation know how important this collaboration has been.” Services could be available in Baahaali, Chichiltah, Zuni Pueblo and all CTL service areas, according to Becenti-Aguilar
