People in one of Vermont‘s smallest and most remote communities celebrating their connection to the information super highway.

State and local officials met yesterday in Norton to mark the connection of a wireless antenna on top of Town Hall to a fiber-optic Internet pipeline.

The project will help bring high-speed internet access to the remote area in Essex County along the Canadian border.

The project is being paid for with help from $10.5 million in federal grant money secured mainly by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy.

Officials hope that since the fiber optic infrastructure is in place, internet service providers will step in to bring services to peoples’ homes.
