Vermont Business Magazine Maple Broadband has connected over one hundred customers to high-speed fiber optic internet.
“This is an exciting milestone for Maple Broadband and validates the demand for broadband in rural and unserved areas,” said Maple Broadband Chair Steve Huffaker.
Maple Broadband currently offers broadband service across 57 miles of its service area in portions of the towns of Cornwall, Middlebury, Salisbury, Shoreham, Leicester, and Whiting. By the end of 2023, service will be expanded to include the majority of Shoreham, portions of Orwell, and additional portions of Cornwall and Whiting by the end of the year.
“As we look to the future and obtaining financing to finish our network build, everyone who chooses Maple Broadband as their internet service provider is directly helping us bring service to areas of the district that we cannot reach with our current grant funding,” said Maple Broadband Executive Director Ellie de Villiers.
Maple Broadband’s currently funded 2024 construction plans include bringing service to portions of 7 towns: Vergennes, Ferrisburgh, Monkton, Orwell, Waltham, Monkton, and New Haven.
