At last, the iPhone comes to Vermont


After a fourteen-month wait, the iPhone is finally coming to Vermont.

"But isn't Vermont a part of the US?" you ask. Well yes, but AT&T -- the iPhone's exclusive carrier in the US -- has no wireless coverage in the Green Mountain State, so the iPhone has never officially been made available. Some enterprising Vermonters have set up blogs and even gone underground with their jailbroken iPhones, but that's all about to change.

Earlier this week, Vermont's WCAX TV reported that area providers Verizon and Unicel have merged, and AT&T will be awarded overlapping service areas to prevent a wireless monopoly in Vermont.

The wait is almost over, Vermonters! Now you can enjoy standing in long lines like the rest of us.

Thanks, B. Marriner!
