Keep BT Local
The City of Burlington is nearing the completion of its process to sell off Burlington Telecom (BT). If a private company purchases BT (7000 subscribers), there is no guarantee that they will provide quality service or affordable rates. If they fail, or if Comcast purchases BT, then we return to the monopoly of Big Cable. The Keep BT Local Cooperative has made a qualified bid to buy BT and turn it into a member cooperative as a way to ensure that BT is kept local, accountable and affordable.
