Across Vermont, broadband adoption and technology availability varies widely from town to town based on providers and local resources.  Training resources and critical partnerships among groups are difficult to locate in many parts of rural Vermont.  Areas with broadband service may have dramatically different levels of usage based on proximity to educational resources and regional socio-economic centers.  Central Vermonters, especially rural residents, are suffering from lack of opportunity to use high-speed broadband internet.  CVRPC is one of the eleven Regional Planning Commissions to receive funding to address the fifth goal of the Vermont 2010 Telecommunication Plan:  “Ubiquitous adoption and use of broadband at home and work.”
