MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state regulators have approved an agreement with FairPoint Communications under which 22,000 customers will get credits on their bills for disrupted service during outages last year.

Under the agreement with the Department of Public Service, Fairpoint also will accept more than $52 million in federal funding and devote it to expanding high-speed broadband Internet access to 28,400 Vermont addresses.

And it has agreed to bring enhanced security to the state’s enhanced 911 emergency calling system.

Friday’s announcement marked Public Service Board’s approval of an agreement struck between the department and FairPoint in August.
