AT&T launches 3G network in Vermont

AT&T on Wednesday has made its 3G mobile broadband network available to the residents of Vermont. Major cities in the state, including Killington, Vernon, Warren and more will receive the faster service this week, with more cities coming online by December 31st. This includes but is not limited to Stowe, Jamaica and Winooski. Later, in 2010, Barre, Montpelier and Northfield, among others, will also get the faster service.

The provider announced at the same time that it has also integrated Unicel cell sites in Vermont into its own network while adding 12 new cell sites in the state. AT&T purchased Unicel's Vermont operations in December of 2008.

With this move, AT&T is addressing criticisms of large gaps in its 3G coverage that Verizon has exploited in its TV ad campaign. It also takes care of the impracticality of smartphones in the state as they had previously been limited to Wi-Fi or EDGE

    Vernon!

    Clearly author has never been to VT. Vernon, where I grew up, is not a major city. Nor are any of the others listed. Not that VT *has* major cities. But, the ones that are worth noting, should the author care to correct, are: Brattleboro, Bennington, Burlington, Montpelier, Manchester and Rutland.

    Vernon. That's excellent.
