Barnard, VT

With a 94% pre-subscription rate in 2008, the residents of Barnard demonstrated an overwhelming desire to support ECFiber in its initial effort to bootstrap the organization and many Barnard homes and businesses were among the first ECFiber customers to come on-line in 2011.

In April 2019 the build was essentially complete, with only a little bit of rework to be done to relocate to new poles in East Barnard and add more capability to the original network in other parts of town.   That work is now complete!

Brookfield, VT

High-speed internet arrived in the Kibbee neighborhood in August 2016 courtesy of a grant from the state to fund a Business Broadband Improvement District. West Brookfield also now has ECFiber through the village and up to parts of Eagle Peak Road.

Over the spring of 2018 ECFiber completed the preparatory work that would enable it to provide high speed internet to the town of Brookfield. During the summer, ECFiber acquired the money it needed to finance the Brookfield build. In the fall, the Brookfield hub was built, and  ECFiber received the final licenses that allowed them to put fiber on the utility poles throughout the entire town. This work has been completed and ECFiber is now hooking up customers in Brookfield.
