Connectivity Help Available at the Department of Public Service
Vermonters are staying home and staying safe during the COVID-19 emergency, but for many that has meant getting by with no access to the internet at home. The difficulty has been particularly challenging for students who are adapting to remote learning, individuals in need of telehealth care, and workers who could earn an income if they could work from home. “If this is your situation, we need to hear from you,” said June Tierney, the Commissioner of the Department of Public Service.
The Department is also tackling the companion challenge of identifying Vermonters who need help now with connectivity, which is why the Department is asking you to contact its Consumer Affairs and Public Information Division (CAPI) for assistance with your specific situation.
