Rural Vermonters urged to demonstrate their need for high-speed broadband Internet access

first_imgRidgeviewTel, a full-service broadband communications company, is helping rural Vermont residents map their broadband needs at the Vermont Dairy Festival in Enosburg Falls this weekend, June 5 through 7. In addition to participating in the popular parade, RidgeviewTel will have a tent in the festival’s concessions area equipped with access to http://weneedbroadband.com(link is external), a dial-up friendly site where festival-goers from communities under- or unserved by broadband can map their location in a system that compiles their demand for broadband to attract service and even federal stimulus dollars.”We are activists,” said  Vince Jordan, CEO of RidgeviewTel. “We understand the value of high-speed Internet and believe everyone deserves affordable broadband and the opportunities it provides. That’s why we’re reaching out inVermont and around the country, encouraging rural residents to map their location and rally their neighbors to do the same.”When the federal government starts distributing the $7.2 billion earmarked for rural broadband, it’s essential that the funds go to areas with the most need. Additionally, communities that have already been mapped for service will be decidedly more attractive to telecommunications companies receiving these funds. With the help of communities likeEnosburg Falls and others throughout Vermont, RidgeviewTel is tracking the true demand directly from the source – rural residents with little to no option for broadband Internet – and helping accelerate network deployments. Additionally, RidgeviewTel plans to share the data collected with economic development groups that can also vie for stimulus dollars and help bring broadband to communities that need it most.RidgeviewTel is a full-service broadband communications company based in Longmont, Colorado, that provides affordable, high-speed, wireless Internet services to communities under-served by traditional telecom and cable providers. Founded by President and CEO Vincent Jordan, a telecom industry veteran and entrepreneur, RidgeviewTel provides wireless broadband to 14 communities in New York, 25 in Colorado, and 15 in Illinois.

Ramsey retains survival hope

first_imgIt is back to the drawing board for manager Chris Ramsey after embattled QPR fell to an uninspiring defeat at Crystal Palace. “Mathematically of course we’re not safe but we’re in a great position and we would have snapped someone’s hand off to be in this position at this stage, whoever the manager was,” he said. “I said to the players when I arrived to look above because if you look below there is anxiety and pressure. You can’t play like that. “You have to try to get above Newcastle, whoever is above us. We’re above Everton, that was a bit of a goal for us. Can we stay above them? There is plenty of motivations in our group to stay where we want to stay. “I think 11th or 12th is top of the league for this team at the moment for where we are at the moment. I n the summer, if we are clever enough it might not be.” The west Londoners have just five points to show from their last 12 top-flight matches, putting their Premier League status at serious risk. Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Selhurst Park was the latest hammer blow, making it four straight defeats after Ramsey last month oversaw Rangers’ first away win of the campaign. Morale had been boosted by that victory but now they are hurtling towards the Championship, with the first-half capitulation against Palace a particular concern. “We’ll go for it as best we can,” Ramsey said, looking ahead to the final nine matches. “The players are disappointed. They’re still unified in what we’re trying to do and all we can do is keep fighting. “The only thing we can do is go back to the drawing board, there’s nothing else we can do. “I know there are Rangers fans out there whose weekend will have been spoilt by this result. “They live, die and breath football every weekend, and that’s what hurts me the most.” While QPR are staring down the barrel, the Eagles now look all-but certain of avoiding relegation. Alan Pardew has done a remarkable job since taking the reins in January, building an eight-point cushion over the drop zone having arrived with Palace in it. Press Associationlast_img read more
