The Latest on Expanding Connectivity in Vermont

AT&T Investments Connect Communities

In Vermont, we invested nearly $70 million in our wireless network from 2019-2021.

We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. That’s why we’re focused on boosting network reliability and capacity as we expand our network nationwide. This helps residents get the best possible experience over the AT&T network where they live, work and play, as well as supporting first responders on FirstNet®.

We are also working closely with local communities and government leaders in Vermont to expand access to high-speed internet. By combining the resources of the government and private sector, together we can fast-track the closing of the digital divide regardless of income or zip code.

  • Supporting First Responders by Expanding the Nation’s Public Safety Network: FirstNet, Built with AT&T, is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband network built with and for America’s first responders. Today, we cover nearly all of Vermont with FirstNet, Built with AT&T – helping to connect public safety agencies and organizations in more than 60 communities across the state. That’s why we’re focused on increasing network capacity for Vermont public safety by deploying Band 14 spectrum – nationwide, high-quality spectrum set aside by the federal government specifically for FirstNet.
