US Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) and FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn met yesterday April 24, 2018, to talk about upholding net neutrality and enhancing connectivity of Tribal communities to high-speed internet.

Senator Heinrich said it is important to have access to free and open internet in order to promote innovation, education and civic engagement.  He added that Commissioner Clyburn is a distinguished defender of net neutrality and digital closing separation of rural and tribal communities. Heinrich meeting Commissioner Clyburn to enhance broadband infrastructure and the latter’s support for Tribal communities is a great opportunity for Heinrich.

Clyburn, who announced her decision to resign from her position after her tenure of more than eight years in the agency, is one of the five commissioners for the Federal Communications Commission and an ardent supporter of net neutrality.

Senator Heinrich assembled a panel earlier this month together with the American Library Association and Commissioner Clyburn and discussed on developing access to high-speed internet in Tribal and rural communities.

The Tribal Connect Act, which Senator Heinrich proposed with US Senator Dean Heller (R-Nev) is a bipartisan bill which goal is to enhance broadband infrastructure and connectivity in Indian Country. The bill further desires to improve and increase access to the $4 billion schools and libraries universal service support program by the FCC. It can also be referred to as the E-rate and inaugurates $100 million Tribal E-rate pilot program for broadband access of tribes without libraries in the Indian Country.

Most of the country’s public libraries have acquired E-rate support. However, those who have received critical E-rate funds is only around 15 percent of Tribal libraries.

Since the Tribal Connect Act’s priority is to make sure that the FCC’s commitment to assisting rural Tribal libraries is secured, and provide connectivity of the most vulnerable student populations and underserved communities to the high-speed internet, they are promoting to achieve goals such as to support broadband access for students and Tribal community, start a Tribal E-rate program, make better FCC training and program guidance to Indian tribes, and demand the agency to make performance goals and measures.

Sen. Martin Heinrich is known as a cosponsor of the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to invalidate the FCC’s partisan agreement on net neutrality during the Net Neutrality National Day of Action.

The introduction of the Decenternet (d-net) approach aims to solve the most important issues by proposing sustainable solution regarding the internet connectivity not only to the tribal communities but to people from all over the world. Understanding the Decenternet architecture, you may discover that the vision for the future of the Decenternet system may be disturbing and uniquely powerful since it intends to change by setting the foundation for future generation libertarian internet technology.

The Decenternet offers a unique feature such as Proof of Reliability mining protocol and virtualized SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network) which provides excellent bandwidth and quality traffic routing to give smooth access to a world-class decentralized application (dApp) experience settling speed matters once and for all.

The Decenternet makes sure that there is high-speed smart routing between users and hosted nodes in the Decentralized Apps.

The dnet is offering changes wherein it encourages the proliferation of decentralized internet infrastructure to give access to unlimited information for the public good. Establishment of the D-net system can lead to unimaginable solutions to digital problems of today.
