Wanted: Burlington Telecom Beta-Testers

Look what I got in my inbox today — thanks Katy at Burton!

Wanted: Beta-Testers

Beginning in the fall of 2005, Burlington Telecom will begin offering telephone, internet, and cable television* services to residents and businesses in the initial service area (ISA). Other areas will follow. Initially approximately 2400 homes and business in the ISA will be able to sign up for two of the three services - telephone and broadband internet service - with cable television becoming available in in December 2005.

*Before we can offer the cable television component we must first acquire a "Certificate of Public Good" through the Public Service Board. This process is being delayed by Adelphia Cable's objections. Again, we hope to be able to offer cable TV by this December.

We Need You: Apply Online

We are looking for approximately 100 Beta-Testers of our system (must agree to take telephone AND internet service) as we-roll out our service across the initial service area.

Here's the type of household we're looking for:
    •     heavy users of the internet
    •      gamers
    •     technology-based home businesses
    •     small businesses with heavy internet and phone use
    •     dial-up internet users

We are offering up to 30 days of free service in exchange for your feedback. The feedback may range from simple e-mail dialogue to participating in focus groups. You will be helping us build a better network - your network! There is no commitment beyond that. After the free period it will be your choice whether or not to continue with BT.

If you are interested in becoming a beta-tester please apply here. We will notify you within a few days if you application has been approved.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
