UTOPIA (Utah Telecommunication Open Infrastructure Agency) Fiber is a group of 11 Utah cities that joined together in 2004 to build, deploy, and operate a fiber to the home (FTTH) network to every business and household within their communities. Our network allows subscribers to connect to the world in ways they have never experienced before, providing blazingly fast Internet speeds, phone, and television services.
Using an active Ethernet infrastructure and operating at the wholesale level, we support open access and promote competition in all telecommunications services. UTOPIA Fiber’s 12 service areas represent nearly 28% of all communities in the United States that can enjoy 10 Gigabit service on a publicly owned network—100 times faster than the national average of 8 Mbps.
When an item is posted, there will be two files that will be made available: the request itself and when questions are received a list of the questions and answers. Please check back frequently to see if the list of questions and answers has been updated.
