About Our Membership

Alaska Tribal Spectrum (ATS) is a Tribally-governed multi-member nonprofit. The ATS charter mission was to ensure the greatest number of Tribes would benefit by reserving spectrum during the FCC 2.5 GHz Tribal Priority application.

The initial mission of ATS was to ensure that the greatest number of Tribes reserved 2.5 GHz spectrum in Alaska before the opportunity ended. ATS made this a simple process and conducted massive outreach to invite tribes to join over the web, by email, or by fax. ATS also coordinated with other individual Tribal applicants to ensure as little inadvertent overlap as possible. As a result, of the 229 possible applicants, close to 200 applied and over a third (85) of them with ATS.

This means that as a group, almost the entire state now has access to 2.5 GHz spectrum. ATS has grown from its initial 85 members to over 100 as more Tribes add their individual spectrum areas in the effort to realize this statewide Tribal network vision. This raises the real possibility to join together as one large member group to raise grant funding to create wireless last mile networks using the statewide spectrum collectively. It creates the opportunity to light up remote villages everywhere in Alaska—where there is no broadband currently available. The ATS last mile network vision is referred to as the Alaska Tribal Network or ATN. It offers true mobility for rural villages with a wealth of Tribal benefits.

Members of ATS fall into 3 types (charter, associate, or managed) depending on when a Tribe joined or will join ATS. Regardless of the type of membership, every member enjoys the same benefits. Each member will earn revenue for the use of the 2.5 GHz spectrum as part of the statewide Alaska Tribal Network (ATN).

A list of over 100 current members can be found at the bottom of this page.

ATS Member Types

To see what type of member you are, please select your Tribe from the dropdown below.

Charter Members

The ATS Tribal consortium had a large number of Tribes join their initial FCC application. We refer to these members as charter Members in ATS.

Associate Members

During the FCC application window, ATS also reserved spectrum for many neighboring areas that included Tribal villages that did not apply on their own to ensure those areas were not lost to the Tribes forever. We refer to these Tribes as associate members.

Managed Members

We are inviting all Tribes that applied individually to the FCC to join ATS as a managed member and let ATS manage their spectrum for maximum benefit as an Alaska Tribal Network (ATN) community. We refer to these members as managed members. Managed members give up no ownership rights to their spectrum.

After your community joins ATS as a managed member, you will be eligible for the benefits of ATS membership, including future grant applications.
