Cell service availability and internet infrastructure in Vermont

The map below shows both the availability of cell phone service and current cable and fiber internet lines around Vermont. Feel free to enter your address in the search field at the bottom left of the map (click on the magnifying glass) to view the connectivity infrastructure near your current location.  In the key at the top left of the map, check the boxes next to the below features to display them on the map. 

Cell Service Availability (blue squares) indicates the strength of the cell service connection along major roadways in Vermont.  If you click on a square, the pop-up box displays the download speed in Mbps from major cell service providers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon and VTel) in that area.  Basic web browsing, such as checking email, is possible at download speeds of 1-2 Mbps, but more than 2 Mbps is generally needed for more advanced activities, such as streaming videos.

Cable Infrastructure (purple lines) displays many of the current cable internet lines across Vermont as well as the name of the company that provides cable internet service along each line (e.g. Comcast or Charter).  Cable internet typically provides download speeds of 10+ Mbps.  A cable line near your home or business may mean that the provider is able to extend service to your location.

Fiber Infrastructure (red lines) displays many of the current fiber internet lines across Vermont as well as the name of the fiber internet service provider along each line.  Fiber internet typically provides download speeds of 100+ Mbps.
