EAST DOVER, Vt. (AP) - About 400 customers of FairPoint Communications in the Vermont community of East Dover now have access to high-speed Internet.
FairPoint says it worked with town officials to expand high-speed access to the rural, east side of the southeastern Vermont mountain town.
The company says it now provides high-speed broadband internet access to nearly 90 percent of its Vermont customers.
FairPoint's Vermont President Mike Smith says the town's support for the project "is a shot in the arm for economic development in the area."
