UTOPIA ISPs Reduce Price of Utah’s Fastest Internet Connection

  • UTOPIA
SALT LAKE CITY – UTOPIA, the open-access fiber-optic network formed by a group of Utah cities, announced a drastic price reduction of its 1 Gbps residential service.

Starting immediately, seven Utah-based ISPs on the UTOPIA network (Beehive Broadband, Brigham.net, InfoWest, SumoFiber, Veracity Networks, WebWave, and XMission) are offering 1-gigabit service for as low as $64.95 per month, representing a 78 percent reduction from the launch price of $299 in June 2012.

This change reflects the collaboration of UTOPIA and its partner ISPs to provide a wide range of options for consumers, as well as UTOPIA’s commitment to continually upgrade and improve its network. Because of the vision and foresight of its member cities, UTOPIA is one of the few networks in the country capable of delivering 1 Gbps service (upload and download) to residential customers.

Ultrafast Broadband Becoming the Standard
Ultrahigh-speed broadband connections are fast becoming the standard for Internet communications such as streaming video, social media, telecommuting, distance learning, video conferencing, VoIP, and much more. UTOPIA’s gig makes everything done on the Internet today even faster, like Skyping with family and friends, uploading and downloading photos, music and video in the blink of an eye, or working from home seamlessly with greater telecommuting and data transfer capabilities. Having advanced infrastructure in place enables even greater innovation involving vast amounts of data.

“More residents in Utah have access and the ability to connect to the digital world at the speed of light than anywhere else in the country and the prices and services being offered by our ISPs make it affordable for many more customers,” said Gary Jones, COO of UTOPIA. “This new price is an incredible value. For not much more than most phone and cable companies charge for their basic 8 Mbps service, our customers get speeds that are more than 100 times faster.”

The announcement validates the foresight UTOPIA cities had in developing this vital infrastructure. The network provides a platform for companies to develop new and innovative services and gigabit speeds dramatically enhance its potential, promote economic development, and enable a new realm of opportunities that aren’t even imaginable today.

In addition to the monthly ISP fee, UTOPIA subscribers pay an infrastructure fee for the fiber connection.
