ATS Members

About Our Membership

Alaska Tribal Spectrum (ATS) is a Tribally-controlled multi-member nonprofit. The ATS charter mission was to ensure the greatest number of Tribes would benefit in the future by reserving spectrum during the FCC 2.5 Tribal Priority application. Once the window closed, the spectrum would go to auction and be lost.

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 joining 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 (80) of them with ATS.

This means that as a group, almost the entire state now has access to 2.5 GHz spectrum. 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, and raising grant funding to purchase modern satellite to light up remote villages everywhere in Alaska where there is no broadband available.

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 current members can be found at the bottom of this page.

ATS members can be included in the upcoming ATS NTIA grant application

ATS is currently finishing a large grant for submittal to the NTIA under the Tribal Broadband Connectivity Program as a large multi-member Tribal organization. All ATS members will be included in the NTIA application.

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, ATS will include your Tribe in the ATS member application for a large NTIA grant that can bring affordable broadband to your community. You still just need to say that you want the benefit with a simple Tribal resolution, provided during the signup process. The resolution must be adopted before September 1st ideally, but no later than October 1st, 2021. Once adopted, simply send a copy of the document to members@aktribalspectrum.org and ATS will do the rest for you.
