Retaining connection to the world around us
Trace Fiber Networks derives its name from the Natchez Trace, a historical route located near the Chickasaw Nation’s ancestral homelands in present-day Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. The Chickasaw people, in addition to other First American tribes, utilized the Natchez Trace for trade and commerce, relying on the path to reach new communities for the exchange of goods and ideas. Today, the Natchez Trace serves as a reminder of the importance of retaining a physical connection to the world around us for purposes of facilitating economic development. Trace Fiber Networks believes that broadband, and in particular fiber-optic Internet, is the modern day version of the trade route once relied upon by the Chickasaw people for commerce. It is with a similar commitment to facilitating opportunity for our community that Trace Fiber Networks seeks to bridge the digital divide in Chickasaw territory.
