UT: The UTOPIA Network Offers a Glimpse into the Future of Broadband Infrastructure | State Tech Magazine

UT: The UTOPIA Network Offers a Glimpse into the Future of Broadband Infrastructure | State Tech Magazine | civil engineering | Scoop.it

Faster Internet is in high demand these days. And although Google helped bring the fiber conversation to the masses, there are numerous efforts to bring superfast broadband to cities all across America. But, while commercial Internet service providers (ISPs) are driving most fiber projects, some community efforts are offering a more citizen-driven approach.

 

The Utah Telecommunication Open Infrastructure Agency, or UTOPIA, is a perfect example. The organization essentially sells its network wholesale to local ISPs and offers direct connections for both residential and business customers. Cities that want access to the network chip in for the infrastructure build-out. The result is that ISPs are forced to compete, keeping costs low for very fast speeds.

 

According to its website, UTOPIA is helping citizens get speeds of 1 gigabit per second for as little as $65 per month. In addition, the fiber networks allow for parallel speeds. This means that uploading, traditionally slower than downloading, can be just as fast.

 

Here is a bit more information from the UTOPIA website:
