WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) -- Tribal officials are making a push to spread high-speed Internet service across the Warm Spring Indian Reservation in Central Oregon.

The Bend Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/xH8fCB) that Warm Springs Telecommunications Co., the ninth tribally owned telecom in U.S., expects to start providing high-speed Internet to area residents in late February and telephone services by the end of March.

A decade ago, only some areas of the reservation had telephone service.
