CenturyLink and UETN Delivering a Terabit of Bandwidth to Utah Schools

  • CenturyLink
SALT LAKE CITY — CenturyLink announced that its gigabit service is helping the Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN) create a network capable of carrying more than a full terabit of combined bandwidth across 1,412 schools and educational locations in Utah. Of those locations, 832 are equipped with CenturyLink fiber-enabled broadband service, providing ultra-fast speeds from 1 to 100 gigabits per second (Gbps).

In addition to serving 824,000 students in K-12 and university campuses, UETN supports applied technology campuses, libraries and healthcare clinics. CenturyLink has served as a continuous technology partner to UETN and its predecessor, EDNET for more than two decades. UETN includes the Utah Education Network (UEN) and the Utah Telehealth Network (UTN).

"As the gigabit leader in Utah, we are proud to work with UETN to deliver technology that helps enhance the educational opportunities for students throughout the state," said Jeremy Ferkin, CenturyLink vice president of operations. "Our partnership with UETN was one of the key drivers allowing CenturyLink to quickly deliver gigabit technology across Utah."

Connecting 60 Percent of Utah Schools to UETN's Network
In addition to connecting approximately 60 percent of Utah schools to UETN's network and providing the backbone infrastructure for its education and healthcare networks, CenturyLink is also the largest provider of gigabit services to residential and business customers in the Salt Lake City metro area and the state of Utah.

CenturyLink provides gigabit services to more than 11,500 businesses along the Wasatch Front, with fiber available to tens of thousands of additional Utah businesses, and is deploying speeds up to 1 Gbps to households throughout the Salt Lake City area, as well as in parts of St. George in southern Utah.
