Vermont Telephone Company, Inc., (VTel) today announced that Karen Marshall is joining the company as President of VTel Data Network.
“Karen is a talented telecommunications professional with a unique set of leadership skills to enhance the capacity of our team,” said VTel Chairman Michel Guité.
VTel’s 1,400 mile optical fiber network offers first-in-Vermont speeds to 100 billion bits per second connecting Montreal, New York, Boston, and Cambridge, Mass., with Burlington, Hanover, and Springfield, and serves some of the largest universities, research institutions, and financial firms in Canada and the Northeast.
“VTel is working very hard to build and deliver world class voice, video, wired and wireless data services within very demanding time commitments to federal and state partners,” Guité added. “Karen’s international experience in Canada and the US make her a tremendous asset to lead development of our multi-state Canada-US fiber network, and to help meet our overall build requirements.”
VTel is a family-owned telephone company whose network began serving rural Vermont in 1890. It operates a four-state optical fiber network from Vermont with connections to New York City, Boston, and Montreal, with speeds of 1 Gig to 100 Gig, serving some of the most intensive data users in the northeast.

VTel is committed to making a meaningful contribution to the prosperity of Vermont communities and the protection of its working landscape. To that end, VTel actively supports Vermont community groups, drives hybrid vehicles, utilizes clean energy including solar, hydro and wind power, and is committed to improving quality of life in Vermont.
