Until now, AT&T has had no service in Vermont. But thanks to some regulatory hullabaloo, AT&T will be getting coverage in the Green Mountain state anywhere Verizon's coverage overlaps with rural provider Unicel, who it's gobbling up (to preserve competition and all that jazz). We're not really sure how the technical details will work (like how AT&T is taking over Verizon service areas, since they use different cell technologies). But the upshot is that Vermonters will be finally be able to legitimately get the iPhone-the last US state to do so. Hell, Canada got it before Vermont did, that has to sting, eh? [WCAX via TUAW]
