First they take our land, now they take our Internet

Internet access to chapter houses across the Navajo Nation has been disconnected. Access won't be restored for at least a couple weeks to the 27,000 square-mile reservation in northern Arizona. Satellite service, paid for with federal funds, is supplied by OnSat Network Communications, which claims it is owed $2.1 million for satellite time. The federal program that administers the service is withholding the money because an audit showed the company may have double-billed the tribe. In the meantime, the only option is to drive an hour to Page, Ariz. to access the Net.
