NEWFANE, Vt. (AP) - Four Vermont towns that had trouble getting cellphone service are getting some help.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) the area, known as the Route 30 corridor including Jamaica, Townshend, Newfane and West Dummerston, will be connected via roaming agreements with several cellular carriers.

The Vermont Telecommunications Authority made the announcement Wednesday in conjunction with CoverageCo, which says it provides technology-neutral cellular coverage to underserved markets.

The company is installing small cellular antennas along roads, primarily on utility poles. The units have a coverage radius of about a half mile.

A statewide CoverageCo project is expected to reach 60 towns by 2015.
