Coverage Area

In 2012, we added to our pole, silo, and barn-sited antennas by completing construction of four, 100–130 foot, steel towers in Plainfield, Woodbury, Hardwick, and Wolcott. We equipped the new towers (and retrofitted most of our others) with antennas powered by WiMAX™ base stations for outstanding fixed-4G service.

Our service signals now reach a large portion of central Vermont as well as some of the Northeast Kingdom—virtually all of Plainfield, East Montpelier, Calais, Woodbury, and Hardwick, more than half of Marshfield, Cabot, Walden, Stannard, Wolcott, and smaller bits of Berlin, Middlesex, Elmore, Hyde Park, Craftsbury, Greensboro, Albany, Sheffield and other neighboring towns. We plan to continually upgrade our currently covered areas to reach even more locations.

2013 Maps

These new, zoomable, coverage maps provide a representation of our full service area. They show both the increased WiMAX™ coverage in our original towns and the new coverage to the north resulting from our recent buildout.

On each map, the green areas indicate strong signal, with a high likelihood of service. The gray areas probably do not receive sufficient CloudBurst™ signal, at this time. If your location is in the gray, though, please don’t assume the worst. These maps are good—but not perfect. Using our radio frequency propogation software, we can make precise point-to-point signal predictions for specific locations. Let us check for you.

Though our signals do not require a direct line-of-sight between station and subscriber, please keep in mind that every location in Vermont is unique, and some sites are blocked by terrain, structures, or dense forest. Therefore, we can’t make any service guarantees, in advance. The final service determination is made when the installation team reaches your location and performs a signal test.

Due to the nature of building a rural broadband network, expansions tend to progress slowly. However, steady installations continue month-by-month, all year round. Registered individuals will be contacted as soon we are able to schedule an installation. There are already hundreds on our list, so don’t delay! If you live outside the current coverage area, you should still register—this will help us determine where to focus our future expansion efforts.
