Gain Access to High Speed Internet

High Speed Internet 16 x 9

Milton Residents - We Would Like to Help You Get Connected!

I have been working with residents around Town to gain access to high-speed internet. Visit the Line Extension Customer Service Assistance Program Website highlighting a program that may assist you, and your neighbors as well. I am asking residents to organize their neighbors and then contact Comcast. Under this program, each resident is eligible for up to $3000 toward the cost of expanding service to his or her home. Comcast estimates the cost of the expansion, once approved the funding flows directly to them upon completion of the line. Comcast has a formula for dividing expansion costs amongst the participants.

I am also planning to ask the Selectboard to commit some of the Town’s portion of the ARPA funds to this cause as well. These funds would assist residents on a case-by-case basis to fill potential funding gaps. If approved, we will plan to use a similar formula to authorize funding.

If interested in pursuing high-speed access at your house, I encourage you to contact Marc Descoteaux of Comcast. Marc covers Milton north to the Canadian Border for Comcast. Please contact him at this email address Marc_Descoteaux@comcast.com.

Please visit the Line Extension Customer Service Assistance Program Website. If you have questions contact Don Turner at 893-6655 or at dturner@miltonvt.gov.
