July Monthly Update
August 3rd, 2020
This summer is going by fast, and here at UTOPIA Fiber, we’re completing new footprints even faster! This month we released six brand-new footprints and completed the construction of three townhomes and HOAs. We also announced our new wildfire detection initiative, the EDWIN Project. Here is a breakdown of the progress we made in July.
If you live in one of the areas below, you can sign up here for speeds up to 10 Gbps on our community-owned fiber network! If you’re waiting for your footprint to be built-out, make sure to enter your information at givemeutopiafiber.com so that we can contact you as soon as your home is ready to sign up.
- We made tremendous progress in West Point City this month, completing WP001 Phase 1 with 224 addresses, an additional 251 addresses in WP001 Phase 2, and 175 address in WP001 Phase 3. Stay tuned for the rest of West Point City to be released in the upcoming months!
- More addresses were released in West Valley City as well, with 468 homes in the WV040 Phase 1 and the first section of our WV016 footprint with 136 additional addresses ready to sign up for fiber speeds.
- We also connected an additional 42 homes in Orem City this month in our OR011 footprint.
Below is a list of the HOAs that we built-out in July. HOAs and townhomes are typically built on private roads, which means we cannot service the homes in that area unless the HOA board or property manager allows us to. If you live in an HOA community, reach out to your HOA president or management, and encourage them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options.
