Vermonters starved for broadband

This item at Burlington FreePress.com starkly illustrates how far behind the demand curve telcos and cable companies have gotten in rolling out high speed Internet. Chittenden County, Vermont residents needed broadband yesterday. More accurately, make that last year or the year before.

The lag between broadband demand and availability here and elsewhere throughout much of the U.S. is likely to continue for many more years. The basic broadband such as being deployed here is already all but obsolete and will be unable to support the increased use of video that is making up ever larger portions of Internet traffic.
