Vermont towns strive to enter modern era of telecommunications

Their residents understandably sick and tired of sluggish "dialug" Internet connectivity that was state of the art technology in the early 1990s, the Associated Press reports more than 20 Vermont towns are forming a community owned, subscriber funded nonprofit to deploy fiber optic telecommunications infrastructure.

According to the AP, a financial institution would finance the system and lease it back to the nonprofit, which would cover the lease with subscriber fees that would run around $120 a month for a "triple play" bundle of TV programming, voice and Internet service.
