About NEK Broadband
NEK Broadband is a Communications Union District formed under 30 VSA Chapter 82 that includes every town in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. We are building public infrastructure to help ensure that every address that has existing electric utility service will have access to affordable, reliable, and high-speed broadband internet. As a non-profit municipality, any revenue created will go towards building and repairing infrastructure, and increasing affordability for our residents.
NEK Broadband works in conjunction with neighboring CUDs to provide service in adjacent counties as deemed necessary or expedient based on utility distribution lines. This is a joint coordination to help bring service to the unserved along these town and county boundaries.
What is a Communications Union District (CUD)?
