EAB’s mission is to help Vermonters access broadband they can afford, bridging the gap between internet availability & internet affordability. We help households in need connect to the best community broadband available.
Many Vermont households fall on the wrong side of the digital divide. Lack of access to broadband amplifies inequities in almost every aspect of life, including education, health care, employment, housing, and banking. While federal support is available to reduce the cost of broadband, last year this benefit did not reach more than 1 in 12 eligible households because the enrollment system is online and difficult to use for both applicants and companies that provide broadband service. That's why we are here to help.
Equal Access to Broadband, Inc. is a 501(c)3 located in rural Vermont. The volunteers and staff that lead EAB believe that Broadband affordability must be developed in tandem with the construction of broadband infrastructure to bridge the digital gap.
