BT Values our Community

Our Burlington 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, too. Over this past year alone we have accelerated the timeline for the $50K STEM grant to help local businesses, donated towards graduation costs for local high schools, sponsored the virtual Dragon Boat Festival, participated and donated to Spectrum’s Sleep Out, partnered with Pre K-12 schools in Burlington to provide families without Internet access connectivity to support remote learning due to COVID-19 and more.

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.

"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." -Coretta Scott King
