We are hiring! We have several new positions open and are currently accepting applications! Check out our website here to see all available positions.

We have some new additions to the UTOPIA Fiber team to announce! Please join us in welcoming Joe Boden as our new Network Operations Center Tech, Rachel McMillian as our Administrative Assistant, Skyler McDougal as our Senior Splicer, and Jason Roberts as our Chief Financial Officer. We are excited to have them on the team!
We had three partial footprint releases and 1 HOA release this month totaling 1372 addresses that are available for connection on our network!
In West Valley City we released phase 1 of WV012. This phase added 780 homes that can now connect to our fiber-fast network!
We were also able to release the first addresses in Pleasant Grove this month! Phase 1 and 2 of PG001 were released allowing 592 homes to connect to our network!
