VTel Gets FCC Money for More Wireless

Governor Peter Shumlin is announcing this news in at a press conference in Montpelier…This is an AP story from a Columbus, Ohio website: http://www.the republic.com

MONTPELIER, Vt. — A Vermont telecommunications company is among the winners of the Federal Communications Commission’s first “mobility fund auction.”

VTel will use the money to expand wireless coverage along 941 miles of Vermont roadways, primarily in Orange and Caledonia counties, but also in parts of Washington, Chittenden, Addison and in other parts of the state.

The Springfield-based telecommunications provider must complete its project within three years and make the network available to other providers for roaming so that as many consumers as possible can benefit from the new networks.

  1. I wouldn’t trust VTel my cat not to mention my internet services or my phone.
