Our community is important to us and we strive to support it in as many ways as we can. While we are located in Burlington, our care extends beyond the city as our fiber footprint expands into Winooski, South Burlington, Colchester, Essex Junction and more on the horizon. At BT, one of our core values is “to define what a local service provider should be.” One of the best ways to do that is by being a good corporate citizen. We work to enhance community services and programs by being an innovative leader in delivering state of the art, next-generation technologies.
