Broadband

Washington Electric Cooperative is participating in a state-wide initiative to bring fiber optic internet (commonly referred to as 'fiber') to as many communities in our territory as possible. We are currently partnering with three Communications Union Districts (CUDs) to deploy fiber. WEC's involvement is simple. We provide the infrastructure CUDs use to deploy fiber.

WEC is not an internet service provider (ISP), even though we are assisting in bringing fiber to rural Vermont. We're still your local electrical co-op, helping the community in any way we can.

As this project grows, our members will be able to find information on WEC's progress and involvement right here on this page. So, make sure to check back every once in a while!

What is a Communications Union District (CUD)?

A "Communications Union District, allow[s] two or more towns to bond together as a municipal entity for a means of building communication infrastructure together." These are are state-sanctioned, municipally-structured non-profit telecom entities whose mission is to provide affordable high-speed internet service to under-served residents and business in rural Vermont.

A word from CVFiber's Chair Jeremy Hansen . . .
You may be seeing this sign on your road soon. If you do, that means CVFiber crews are out surveying utility poles in your area as the first step towards bringing the opportunity for fiber optic internet service to your home or business. Ask one of the workers for a brochure and feel free to look us up at cvfiber.net or contact the Project manager at cvfiber.pm@cvfiber.net or 802-552-3088.

Message to Our Members

WEC members in central Vermont may notice vehicles in their area during August and September 2021 with the CVFiber signs on local roads. The CVFiber Communications Union District (CUD), working with WEC, has contracted with a technical service contractor to do field surveys in all of the CUD's member towns.
For more information, contact your town's CUD directly.
