Tilson Designs and Builds 100+ Miles of High-Speed Broadband for Rural Communities in Vermont

For Immediate Release


ST. JOHNSBURY, Vermont (07/21/2021). Tilson, a national network development and information infrastructure professional services firm, completed construction of a fiber to the premise (FTTP) network bringing Tilson Broadband’s fiber optic internet service to parts of Danville, Lunenburg, and St. Johnsbury, Vermont. In just eight months, Tilson designed and constructed over 100 miles of fiber in Vermont extending broadband internet access to thousands of underserved and unserved Americans. 

“Tilson is committed to partnering with our neighboring rural communities to connect people to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and much more,” said Joshua Broder, Tilson CEO. “A special thanks to the Vermont Public Services Division, the Tilson team, our subcontractors and vendor network, local utilities, and our local municipalities building this network in record time.”  

Supported by two grants awarded to Tilson last year, Tilson Broadband customers, most of whom did not have access to highspeed internet prior, now have access to world class broadband fiber internet speeds ranging from 500 Mbps to up to 10 Gbps. Additionally, buoyed by the customer response, Tilson Broadband has committed capital to further expand the network in Vermont over the next 18 months. 

“Our team is so grateful for the warm welcome and enthusiasm from our customers” said Kate Rush, VP of Corporate Development. “We are excited to continue to expand this network and serve more Vermonters in the months and years to come.”
