About Vermont Community Broadband Board

This plan for broadband was created as a direct response to COVID-19 and has analyzed the number of families that didn’t have adequate access to broadband during this crucial period. When this statement was released in 2020, 23 percent of the state didn’t have access to broadband at 25/3 Mbps. 23 percent was equivalent to 69,899 business and residential locations.

The Emergency Broadband Action Plan will bring access to fiber-based broadband service at 100/100 Mbps to the 70,000 locations in the state that lack broadband access.

Included in this plan is to have universal broadband access deployment by 2024. To achieve this, the state will provide direct financial support to communications union districts through the Broadband Innovation Grant Program for purposes of administrative and grant writing support. 

It will also fully fund a broadband-access deployment program for unserved towns with requested funds between $42 million and $296 million.
