Vermont becomes fifth US state to boot up its own net neutrality rules


Green Mountain Blues

Vermont is apparently a fairly well-run state. It recovered from 2011's Hurricane Irene without the kinds of meltdown seen in, say, Louisiana. I can personally attest to seeing the washed out mountain roads rebuilt, although some farmers are still waiting for the OK to resume planting on "contaminated" ground.

However its population of about 500,000 spread over various cities and towns isn't going to tempt most ISP's to invest, and the threat from the state legislature is correspondingly low.
