Walker said infrastructure improvements are continuing. The communities of Seeksequa, Simnasho and Sidwalter were underserved by the area's major carrier, but Nike Vapormax Platinum University Red using wireless point to point service, he said the gaps have been eliminated.
In addition, he said Warm Springs Telecom is trying to fund a multimillion dollar project to build fiber in Madras by August.
"There are several reasons for people to stop and enjoy the culture or make it a destination and stay at the Kah Nee Ta Lodge and warm up in the hot springs on these cold winter days."
The biggest goal is to have a redundant fiber optic ring, so if one system goes down, the other will make sure customers stay connected,he said.
About a month later, the $13.5 million casino opened, replacing the casino at Kah Nee Ta Resort Spa, about 14 miles north of Highway 26.
"Just the accessibility of having the Internet to do sales and marketing for our business has been really helpful," said Scott, the owner of Salmon King Fisheries, which sells and ships fresh and packaged salmon, steelhead and other fish wholesale and retail.

"I think we would have a lot more work to do on the UAV range if we didn't have broadband coverage on the reservation," he said.
"It allows them to explore a little bit more than they are used to, browsing the Web, utilizing online streaming apps like Netflix," he said. "Their lives are changing."
When Brigette Scott received high speed Internet service last month at her business, located next to Indian Head Casino, it finally allowed her to engage with her online customers from her store.
"The strategy was easier access to the casino," he said. "When you build a resort, it's a destination; you plan on staying there for an amount of time. At a casino you're only going to stay a short amount of time. You spend your entertainment dollars and leave."
"They provide us a great service that is vital to our operations on a daily basis," he wrote in an email. "If (they didn't) provide the service, we would be required to rely on an outside entity."
"I think it gives the community much more exposure," he said.
Harold Baugus, general manager for Indian Head Casino, said without the services of Warm Springs Telecom, the casino wouldn't be able to operate.
The project was funded by $5.4 million in grants and loans from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, along with $750,000 from the Warm Springs tribes.
By relocating along the highway, he said, people can eat and play without having to drive an extra 14 miles to where it was previously.
Janet Brown, Jefferson County manager for Economic Development for Central Oregon, agreed.
In January 2012, Warm Springs Telecom became the ninth tribally owned telecom in the United States, providing the reservation with new telephone and Internet service.

About 6,000 cars travel from other parts of Central Oregon to Warm Springs daily, he said. And while the majority of casino visitors come from Central Oregon, he said, a percentage also comes from Portland, The Dalles and other areas.
Moving the casino to Highway 26, Baugus said, has increased the number of people coming through its doors about 30 40 percent.
"This would allow us to access a larger amount of bandwidth," he said. "Right now, we're getting about 440 megabits. And with getting fiber off the reservation, that would allows us to increase that amount of bandwidth into 1 gig(abit) of data, which is 1,000 megabits."

"The impact of telecom has really helped people motivate and move forward because of the technology that they have," he said. "They feel like they're actually caught up to the world instead of being left behind."
Warm Springs Telecom signed up its fist customer in the spring of 2012 and now has more than 700 subscribers, said Gabriel Walker, sales and marketing coordinator for Warm Springs Telecom.
