Spooky season is over, and you know what that means…it’s officially time to put up your Christmas tree! (Just kidding!) The past few months, we’ve been quietly working to complete more footprints throughout our member cities. We have a lot of areas opening up before 2021, so make sure to follow our socials to be the first to hear about our footprint releases. Keep reading to see what we’ve been up to this October.

Footprint Releases

  • We completed PA004 this month, connecting an additional 202 addresses in Payson City, Utah to our ultra-fast fiber network.
  • We also completed our MD007 footprint with 442 additional homes in Midvale City. These homes can now stream, work from home, and learn remotely at the speed of light.

HOA releases

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 a multi-dwelling community, check out our blog post about how to get your property manager on board with UTOPIA Fiber.
