VEC and GMP Announce Broadband Deployment Program

Vermont Electric Co-op (VEC) and Green Mountain Power (GMP) each launched a Broadband Deployment Program to help rural Vermonters get connected to broadband quickly and cost-effectively. The plans approved Friday by the Vermont Public Utility Commission lower the cost for broadband providers to connect the hardest-to-serve customers by offering up to $2,000 per unserved location for infrastructure connection costs. The program aims to create greater equity for customers to access the economic, educational and social benefits that come with connectivity, including the ability to choose innovative energy services that rely on broadband availability.
