    MONTPELIER - The Vermont Telecommunications Authority says broadband Internet service is expanding in northern Orange County.

    The first seven miles of the Orange County Fiber Connector project are in service and a total of more than 32 miles of the 36-mile route have been hung on utility poles.

    The route begins in Chelsea, generally follows Route 113 to Thetford and then Route 132 to Sharon.

    The authority compares the fiber to interstate highways with a large capacity to transmit data. Internet service providers then connect customers to the fiber network.

    Gov. Peter Shumlin has set the goal of ensuring all Vermonters have access to broadband Internet service by the end of this year.
