Sacred Wind Communications (SWC) is an NM-based, privately-owned rural telecommunications carrier created in 2006 to provide voice and broadband services to the Navajo Nation and other tribes in northwest New Mexico. Starting operations in a 3,200 square mile area of tribal lands where only 26% of homes had basic voice service available, SWC rebuilt a state-of-the art infrastructure using a mix of landline and wireless technologies and today provides access to voice and high-speed broadband services to over 90% of homes in its service territory.
Since 2012, SWC built and boot-strapped the Laguna Pueblo in operating its own broadband system, extended its fiber-optic network to 5 small communities in McKinley & Cibola Counties, and now offers 100Mbps download speeds to homes in those communities under the brand "Connect66 Internet" via fiber to fixed wireless, is providing Gigabit speeds to over 30 rural schools in McKinley and San Juan Counties - and most recently to Sierra County in southern NM - and has begun to build broadband infrastructures in new areas of the Navajo Nation, to the Acoma Pueblo and over larger areas of Sierra County.
