Attention residents of Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, Moretown, and Worcester: CVFiber is conducting an inventory of utility poles in your community. CVFiber is central Vermont’s locally-owned community Internet service provider whose mission is to bring fast broadband to every address in its 21 member communities.
You’ll know our contractors by their bright yellow vests and magnetic CVFiber signs on their vehicles’ doors. They are inventorying every pole, roadside and off road, including those on private property. They will make every effort to obtain permission from you before going into your backyard or posted property. If you’re not at home, they may ask a neighbor to contact you to let you know that workers are looking to access a pole on your property.
The inventory will gather more than 50 data points for each pole. This information is critical for designing and building the broadband network. The work is being paid for by grants allocated by the Vermont Community Broadband Board from federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
The first five towns include many addresses that are unserved or underserved by current Internet providers. As CVFiber receives more grants, the inventory will expand to other communities in our service district.
CVFiber’s first priority is to make 100/100 Mbps service available to the 6,100 underserved locations within the district. If you don’t have service, or your service is less than 25/3 Mbps, that means you.
The goal is to make service available to 50% of underserved locations in 2022, 80% in 2023, and 95% in 2024.
CVFiber is a Communications Union District (CUD) municipal organization made up of 21 Central Vermont communities. They include Barre City, Barre Town, Berlin, Cabot, Calais, Duxbury, East Montpelier, Elmore, Middlesex, Marshfield, Montpelier, Moretown, Northfield, Orange, Plainfield, Roxbury, Washington, Waterbury, Williamstown, Woodbury, and Worcester.
