November Monthly Update
December 1st, 2020
The holiday season is officially upon us! Here at UTOPIA Fiber, we won’t be just sitting inside drinking hot cocoa and watching Hallmark movies this December. Okay, maybe just one or two holiday movies– but we’re also working super hard to connect more areas to our open-access fiber network! And buckle up, because we have a lot of footprints being released this upcoming month. Be sure to follow our social media channels to be the first to hear about our footprint releases. Keep reading to see what we got up to this November.
- We completed WV019 this month, connecting a whopping 1490 additional homes in West Valley City, Utah to our ultra-fast fiber network. These homes can now sign up for 250 Mbps, 1 Gbps, or 10 Gbps speeds on Utah’s top-rated, community-owned, UTOPIA Fiber system!
- We also completed WV030A in West Valley City with 398 additional homes in Phase 1 ready to learn remotely, work from home, and binge-watch Netflix all at the speed of light. Phase 2 will be completed soon!
