NORTH HERO — Residents of the Champlain Is lands, traditionally isolated from the mainland,
this month opted for e-connectivity upgrades.
Grand Isle County is one of 12 relatively isolated areas that received grants to improve Internet applications in schools, municipal and civic networks and in commerce. The money is not used to bring broadbrand to the community, rather it teaches residents to make better use of the Internet.
It holds the promise of a great leap forward, said Ruth Wallman, executive director of the Lake Champlain Islands Chamber of Commerce.
