Fiber Optic Cable Transferred to CUDs

Thank you for your interest in the Fiber Optic Network formerly managed by the Department of Public Service. 

Act 71 (2021) transferred ownership of the former VTA (VT Telecommunications Authority) fiber optic assets, from the Department to the communications union districts (CUDs) in which those assets are located. The transfer included the rights and obligations under any existing contracts or lease agreements with third parties regarding the maintenance or use of the fiber optic assets.

More information about the transferred fiber optic cable assets can be found on the VT Community Broadband Board's (VCBB) Vermont's Middle Mile Proposal for the NTIA webpage
