Telecom History

San Carlos Apache Telecommunications Utility, Inc. is incorporated by the San Carlos Apache Tribe.

The San Carlos Apache Tribe established SCATUI by tribal resolution on March 8, 1994. The tribe’s main objective was to develop, own, finance, construct, and operate a telecommunications company to provide quality service for its members.

 

Infrastructure

SCATUI maintains over 207 miles of copper and fiber optic facilities throughout the reservation and is interconnected by a state of the art softswitch providing local and long distance calling. Our headquarters office is located north of highway 70 in Peridot, Arizona. A majority of our employees are tribal members.

SCATUI is the local telecommunications provider for the San Carlos Apache Reservation.

Our service areas include the four districts of Seven Mile Wash, Gilson Wash, Peridot, and Bylas Districts.
