bq. We must support the development of high-tech centers throughout Vermont and the University of Vermont’s efforts to develop an incubator facility for emerging technologies. To help ensure the success of rural and urban employers alike, we must also build a robust technological infrastructure. Working with private sector partners we will create a wireless network that covers all of our major transportation arteries, and extend broadband Internet access to 90 percent of our homes and businesses by 2007.

Ski centers, designer outlets and now broadband, hey it may not be such a bad idea to move to Vermont.
