Vermont hopes for 100% broadband by 2010

Times Argus says nearly 75% of Vermont has access to broadband, and the state is going for 100% availability before the end of the decade. Perhaps now we can replace South Korea with Vermont in our broadband laments. On a serious note, this proves if the country/state is small enough, the high double digit penetration rates can be achieved. In Vermont, all 112,000 of Adelphia’s customers have broadband, and 57% of Verizon’s 260,000 have DSL. Nearly 90 percent of the state’s 100,000 customers of small independent telephone companies have broadband. But rural areas are still waiting for high speed networks.
