November 29th, 2023
Murray, UTAH (November 28, 2023) – UTOPIA Fiber announced today the successful completion of its fiber-to-the-home build in the City of Cedar Hills, Utah. The $5.9 million project, which commenced construction on June 15, 2022, has now concluded with the delivery of ultra-high-speed broadband to every residential and business address in the city.
This milestone marks yet another significant achievement for UTOPIA Fiber as it adds Cedar Hills as its 18th city with the fastest residential and business internet speeds available in the United States. The first homes were seamlessly connected to the lit fiber network on August 10, 2023, and the entire project, including 2,656 residential addresses, was completed on September 8, 2023.
“Today’s announcement marks a pivotal moment for the residents of Cedar Hills and everyone at UTOPIA Fiber,” said Roger Timmerman, Executive Director & CEO of UTOPIA Fiber. “We are thrilled to expand our footprint in Utah County—all the while firmly maintaining our growth trajectory and commitment to bring more Utah residents ultra-high-speed and reliable broadband service.”
UTOPIA Fiber’s Open Access model, the largest of its kind in the United States, empowers multiple private-sector internet service providers (ISPs) to compete, fostering a net-neutral environment that encourages free-market competition. This approach leads to enhanced broadband access for residents while promoting service excellence and affordability.
Denise Andersen, Mayor of Cedar Hills City, expressed her excitement, saying, “This move to fiber has been eagerly anticipated and a welcome addition in our digital world. Thanks to UTOPIA Fiber’s comprehensive network build-out, our residents can now enjoy access to fast and reliable internet connections that make work, school, and online everything easy and accessible. We are thrilled with the reaction from our residents, and so happy to help move Cedar Hills into the digital future.”
Since 2009, the Cedar Hills City project—like all other UTOPIA Fiber projects—has been funded and grown solely through subscriber revenue. The completion of this project further extends UTOPIA Fiber’s reach, providing residents with access to speeds up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and 100 Gbps for businesses, currently the fastest speeds offered in the United States.
