Funding may slow Internet expansion


With the help of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act - otherwise known as the Obama stimulus package - all Vermonters might soon have access to highspeed broadband.

The state plans on applying for at least $50 million for broadband expansion, said Tom Evslin, the chief recovery officer for the state's Office of Economic Stimulus and Recovery.

"If we had $50 million landing on our doorstep, we could make sure that every Vermont resident has good broadband," he said.
