For ten years, Warm Springs has been trying to bring more internet access to their area and today they'll take a big step toward that goal. The Tribes of Warm Springs will break ground on the new Warm Springs Telecommunication Company. $5.6 million in federal stimulus dollars are helping to build this new company that will bring basic telephone and Internet service to the reservation.   Marcia Spellman is the Regulatory Director of Warm Springs Telecommunications: “People are so excited. Can you image; the kids that go to Madras. The kids in Madras go home and have Internet, but our kids go home and don't have anything. Kids want it for the homework, but they also want it to play games and they can be like everyone else.” Warm Springs Telecommunication plans to start offering service in the fall of 2011. Currently only one quarter of those on the reservation have Internet access.
