Groton Broadband Community Interest Group

We’re forming a Community Interest Group to discuss & exchange information on all things broadband related. The initial focus will be around helping ensure we’re making the most of what’s currently available, sharing details about new broadband solutions being offered, and becoming better prepared and coordinated across the community so that Groton is well positioned for what may be coming in the future.

 

We’d love to have broad participation in this group across the community. With $150-$200 million being spent over the next couple of years to try and get broadband internet service into every corner of Vermont, now is a great time to do what we can to help ensure Groton will be well served as a result.

If getting access to better high-speed internet options is important to you and your family, consider becoming part of the group.
