UTOPIA Community Partnership Project

The Utah Telecommunications Open Infrastructure Agency (UTOPIA), a collaboration between 16 Utah
municipalities in the Great Salt Lake region of northern Utah, proposes to enhance its existing fiber network to
bring improved broadband services to Perry, Layton, Centerville, West Valley, Murray, Midvale, Orem, and
Payson, with the capacity to expand to the entire region. Government entities in the region, such as the offices
of the Layton Chief of Police and the Mayor of Centerville City, have attested to the need for enhanced services
to facilitate public safety, education and research, and day-to-day government transactions. UTOPIA also
intends to use existing partnerships with the Utah Department of Transportation, the Utah Transit Authority, and
the Utah Education Network to expand the network’s reach to more community anchor institutions, over 175 of
which could benefit from the network.
