The State of Vermont has compiled a list of WiFi hotspots around the state via this Interactive Broadband Map
H.966 passed into law in July of 2020, thereby establishing the Get Vermonters Connected Now program. The $17 million appropriation for this program will be used to expand broadband networks for students and other affected groups who lack physical access to broadband today for purposes such as remote learning and telehealth during the COVID-19 Emergency.
Since early April, the Department of Public Service has been collecting data on student access to broadband in Vermont's school districts. In order to maximize the odds of success for the Get Vermonters Connected Now program, the Department has put together a survey and map that students, teachers, and administrators can use to identify and report specific locations that need broadband service. To obtain robust data for the program, a survey has been created and can be found here.
Survey data can also be reported verbally to the Department by calling the Consumer Affairs and Public Information Division at 800-622-4496 (callers should leave a message with their phone numbers and staff will return their calls promptly)
