Our Livelihoods and Lifestyles Depend On It
We believe that every Vermonter deserves to have fast, reliable, and affordable access to the Internet.
In Vermont, we don’t want to run our businesses from massive steel and glass office parks. We want to run them from extra bedrooms, basements, and barns. Our children’s education and development depend on services delivered digitally, engaging elementary-aged students through high school and beyond. Our property values are directly linked to internet speed and availability. Digital services such as education, healthcare, and communication will permit rural Vermonters of all ages to enjoy a satisfying lifestyle.
None of this is possible without fast and reliable access to the Internet.
To date, the federal government, state government, and legacy telecommunications companies have failed to provide this service to Vermont residents and business people. If the government and private business cannot create the infrastructure needed to support the Vermont lifestyle, private community-based organizations such as ECFiber can and will.
