A local CBS affiliate in Vermont is reporting that AT&T will finally be moving into the state it’s been denied in for years.Â Thanks to the Verizon/Unicel merger that was recently approved, Verizon picked up several rural areas,Â which includes several markets in Vermont.
With the merger, it leaves only one wireless network in the state, which spells trouble and a potential wireless monopoly.Â AT&T has picked up the slack, and can now offer their services throughout the state. This spells good news for residents that have patiently anticipated the iPhone for going on 14 months now.Â Given that some determined residents used jailbroken iPhones on other networks, at last the “got-to-have-it” device is legally available with full-fledged AT&T services.
The process of conversion will obviously take months to accomplish, but they’ve waited long enough, what’s another few months?Â Now, the only other question is whether or not they’re also turning on 3G for the Green Mountain State.
