When our boys were younger, being children of the age of online everything, they were flabbergasted one day on our ride from New Jersey to Vermont when they couldn’t get their Nintendo DS to work online. My oldest son was flustered that he just couldn’t get the internet to work and didn’t understand why. My husband had to patiently explain to them that the internet wasn’t everywhere…we were driving and they would have to wait until we arrived at our destination.

My oldest was understandably both disgusted and distraught. How could the internet not be everywhere? Well, his dream is evidently coming true and he will have VTel and the federal government to thank. VTel announced yesterday that it had received sufficient federal funding to extend broadband wireless “to every corner of the state”. That’s right TJ, pretty soon the internet will be everywhere.
