On Tuesday, the e-Vermont Community Broadband Project selected 12 communities to participate in a rural broadband initiative. The town of Dover was among them.
E-Vermont is a national broadband adoption initiative focused on rural needs. The project will bring digital tools and in-depth Internet training to areas lacking broadband access. They will benefit from the expertise and resources of e-Vermont’s statewide partners as the local groups develop ways to take full advantage of the Internet for creating jobs and innovative schools, providing social services, and increasing community connection. Also selected were Bridgewater, Calais, Castleton, Fairfield, Hardwick, Jay/Westfield, Middletown Springs, Moretown, Morristown, Richford, and Vergennes.
