Bandwidth options for dial-up and mobile data plans

To access the Low Bandwidth 24 kbps MP3 streams, use the URLs above or the Audio Player.

Vermont Public offers our live streams in several different bit rates. Generally speaking, streams with higher bit rates produce better sound than streams with lower rates. This bit rate is measured in kilobits per second (kbps), abbreviated to "k." While higher bit rate streams sound better, they also require higher bandwidth internet connections.

Listeners with high-speed internet, such as from fiber network or cable broadband, can usually listen to the higher bit rate streams, e.g. 64k, 96k and 128k. Listeners on DSL and satellite should start with the 64k stream options but may have to use 24k when their connections are slow.

If you're listening on a mobile device, and not using WiFi or an unlimited data plan, you may incur charges for from your carrier for mobile data usage (this applies to any streaming service, not just Vermont Public). In this case, you can use the 24 kbps streams, available below and on the Audio Player, to help minimize your data consumption, but be mindful you may incur charges.

If you have a dial-up connection, your best streaming option is to use the 24k MP3 streams. Higher bandwidth streams might not work on dial-up connections.

Please note that internet speeds can vary for each user and network and can vary depending on time and conditions. Try streams of different bit rates to find the best listening experience for your device and connection. If you experience poor performance with a stream that is usually reliable, try the lower option temporarily. If you have questions, contact us.

What are MP3, AAC and Flash?

MP3 is the most common encoding for digital audio and is supported across the greatest number of browsers and devices. AAC+ is audio coding that delivers higher quality audio at lower bandwidth. Flash is a common internet software platform that we use to deliver the AAC+ streams on devices that don't natively support that format. AAC+ currently works in Safari and Chrome but not all other browsers, while Flash plays in most desktop browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.) but not all mobile devices. But if you can listen to AAC or Flash - via the Audio Player, your browser, or some other player - you may notice a richer sound at lower bit rates, especially with music.
