Vermont's digital future envisoned at conference


In his opening remarks at the recent Vermont’s Digital Future Conference, Gov. Peter Shumlin said Internet service at his Putney home is behind that of Vietnam, Cambodia and Croatia. “It’s behind most of the undeveloped world, and most of the 49 states,” he said. “If we don’t connect, what’s at stake for us?”
