Utah Public Service Commission
State Broadband Capacity Building:
The funding will enable the Utah Broadband Project to establish one additional staff member to support the existing project staff. It will also support a research survey on broadband demand and usage and local outreach related to increasing broadband adoption.
Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:
This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
Address File Development:
Utah PSC proposes to develop a crowd sourcing application for address development through a public-private partnership with Blue Stakes of Utah, and will also leverage state-to-county relationships and Utah’s 911 Committee to develop a statewide address file.
