Residents of five Central Vermont towns will soon see the first big step toward providing fast internet throughout CVFiber’s service district. Work crews will be conducting a comprehensive pole inventory that’s necessary in order to design a fiber network.
The crews will collect more than 50 different kinds of data on every utility pole including precise latitude, longitude and GPS position, pole height and condition, available attachments and their exact heights. Workers will also take photographs to document each pole.
This includes poles on private property. Every work vehicle will display a CVFiber logo.
Initially, the inventory will take place in Moretown, Middlesex, Worcester, Calais, and East Montpelier. These are the five communities in the CVFiber district with the most unserved or underserved locations. Inventory work in twelve other communities will follow later this year.
CVFiber plans to provide 100/100 Mbps service available to every location in its service district. We will prioritize 6,100 unserved or underserved locations. The goal is to make service available to 50% of those locations in 2022, 80% in 2023, and 95% in 2024.
CVFiber is a Communications Union District (CUD) municipal organization made up of twenty (20) Central Vermont communities. CVFiber has a single goal: deliver fast, dependable, and affordable Internet to every Vermonter within its member towns.
The twenty communities that are a part of the CVFiber district are: Barre City, Barre Town, Berlin, Cabot, Calais, Duxbury, East Montpelier, Elmore, Middlesex, Marshfield, Montpelier, Moretown, Northfield, Orange, Plainfield, Roxbury, Washington, Williamstown, Woodbury, and Worcester.
