Getting a major boost

Town of Vermont should see internet, phone service improve after broadband grant


August 10, 2017

Poor internet and telephone service in portions of the Town of Vermont received a boost last week when the Public Service Commission awarded TDS Telcom a $286,000 broadband expansion grant.

The 307 locations to be wired for internet service are located just south of the village of Black Earth and include 21 business.

The state’s Broadband Expansion Grant program annually awards $1.5 million to areas of the state that do not have high-speed internet service.

The grant was awarded to Black Earth Telephone, doing business as TDS Telecom, and will match the state’s grant amount.
