Gov. Phil Scott and state officials highlighted an administration proposal to improve cell coverage across the state by investing over $50 million to construct new towers and spur expanded coverage. Scott and Department of Public Safety Commissioner June Tierney discussed the proposal that was part of Scott’s budget plan during the state’s media briefing Tuesday. Scott said while recent years have seen a focus and emphasis on improving broadband connectivity across the state, cell service needed investment as well. “Even though broadband has received a lot of attention, anybody, like me, who has driven around the state a lot can tell you it’s time we bring Vermont into the 21st century with cell service as well,” said Scott.
