Most of Vermont effectively has one choice, Comcast. Fairpoint offers DSL but it sucks, where it’s even available, and there’s some oddball wireless ISP stuff but it’s all dreadful. The only true broadband is Comcast or, if you’re lucky enough to live in Burlington, the municipal ISP Burlington Telecom, which is wicked fast but is embroiled in financial and legal troubles that might strangle it.
We pay, well, a shit ton more than $60/month, but we do have the Internet, HD TV, and phone bundled. I can’t complain about the performance or service, really, as Comcast has been fine in that regard, but not having any real choice is a bit of a downer.
Fun fact: I’ve NEVER had any broad band choice. I moved to Vermont twenty years ago when all I had ever experienced was dial up. We got broadband cable early in the 2000s, from Comcast, the only provider that offered it.
