Salt Lake City Joins Utopia


Salt Lake City has elected to join 17 other Utah cities in UTOPIA, the fiber to the home (FTTH) project that promises to provide high speed internet, data, voice, and video services to over 750,000 Utah residents. Utopia is currently preparing bonds for sale and hopes to begin construction this summer. The bonds will be revenue bonds, not general obligation, which means that they are not backed by taxes. Good for the taxpayer, but harder to sell. I think Utopia is a grand experiment and I'm anxious to see how it progresses. There's some additional information on the Utopia Homepage.
