Walden School has DSL from Fairpoint (they've served Walden since long
before they bought out Verizon land lines across VT).
They have a closet/shack a few tenths of a mile, along Route 15 near
where the road to the school turns off. So we get pretty much whatever
speed they push to that point. It'd be great to have a connection over
which we could be streaming video, the secretary could be listening to
the radio, we could replace (or augment) the phones ... with a stable
The other schools in Caledonia Central SU are Danville, with whom I
think they still share an internet connection (though the CCSU offices
moved to the other side of Route 2 recently, so I don't know if
arrangements changed as a result). Barnet has, I think a satellite
connection with which they're not very happy. Don't know what Peacham
John Rapoza handles networking for Danville and CCSU. Superintendent
Martha Tucker could tell you who to contact for Barnet and Peacham.

realize many are on break.. I need a little info though from those that
here at state level are heating up around broadband access
you could send me no more than a paragraph about your school or
district and how you obtain broadband access currently, it would be
very helpful. I know it is all over the map statewide, and we have
been discussing a broadband consortium for quite some time, but it
looks like we have some opportunities coming up.
give me a quick blurb about how you get access and what level of access
you have.. It would be helpful too if you could tell me what you pay
for that access, but not necessary if you don't have that info at your
you prefer, send it directly to me and not on the list. your call.
for your help...
