New North End Store to Feature Virtual Reality Classroom, Cord-Cutting Test Lab and more!

In an effort to better serve their customers in Burlington’s New North End, Burlington Telecom has opened an additional storefront in the Ethan Allen Shopping Center on North Avenue.  

The new satellite space offers BT’s exceptional in-house customer service and technical support, with a few noticeable upgrades. Customers can lounge, living-room style, in a new OTT Test Lab where a Cord-Cutting specialist will provide demonstrations of the latest and greatest in over-the-top streaming technology to help customers discover which combination of devices and services will work best for their viewing habits and budget. 

For parents stopping in to pay a bill or pick up new equipment, there is a chalkboard wall along with toys, games and books to entertain the kiddos.

BT’s new location is also home to a Virtual Reality classroom, complete with a permanent HTC Vive Virtual Reality gaming set-up and another Oculus Rift VR kit. The space will frequently be opened to the public for VR gaming nights, cord-cutting seminars, tech movie nights and more! Plans are already in the works to support the Champlain College E-Sports team with future game competition fundraisers.  

“The Burlington Telecom residential services team, led by Stacey Trudo, has been dreaming up this space for a long time and it’s very exciting to finally hang up the open sign. Now our New North End customers won’t have to come all the way downtown to pay a bill or pick up a new remote control. Amenities like the cord-cutting test lab and classroom space work to serve our company values of being innovative leaders in next generation technologies, while redefining what it means to be a local service provider.” – Abbie Tykocki, Marketing & Public Relations Director
