August Monthly Update
September 1st, 2020
We made a lot of big announcements last month here at UTOPIA Fiber! Keep reading to make sure you’re caught up with all of the progress and announcements we made in August.
- We will be connecting Clearfield City to our open-access fiber network. Clearfield will be the 15th city to partner with us for a fiber-to-the-home project. Clearfield residents, visit our website for service maps, build-out timelines, and information on how to sign up for UTOPIA Fiber.
- We also added a new Internet service provider to our network, Advanced Stream. They are one of 13 ISPs on our open-access system to provide speeds up to 10 Gbps! Check out our residential pricing page to learn more about Advanced Steam’s pricing options.
- Access to high-speed Internet is not just important; it’s essential. We knew that long before the COVID-19 crisis hit and have been working with cities to provide free Wi-Fi hotspots throughout Utah since 2011. Here is a list of the areas where we provide Wi-Fi hotspots, with more coming soon.
If you live in one of the areas below, you can sign up here for the nation’s fastest speeds. If you’re waiting for your footprint to be built-out, enter your information at givemeutopiafiber.com to be the first in line to sign up when your area is complete.
- We made progress in one of our newest cities, West Point City, this month, completing 259 addresses in WP001 Phase 4 and 165 addresses in WP001 Phase 5. 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 an additional 772 addresses in WV016 and 188 addresses in WV040 ready to connect to fiber.
Below is a list of the HOAs that we built-out this month. HOAs, townhomes, and apartments are typically built on private roads, which means we cannot service residents in that area unless the HOA board or property manager allows us to. If you live in an multi-dwelling community, reach out to your property management and encourage them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options.
