Utah Anchors: A Community Broadband Project
The Utah Anchors: A Community Broadband Project plans to enhance and expand the Utah Education Network (UEN) by deploying fiber-based Ethernet broadband services to 130 anchor institutions across the state, including elementary schools, public libraries, charter schools, and Head Start centers. The project expects to enable these anchor institutions to move from copper-based T1 or slower connections to fiber-based Ethernet broadband connections with speeds of 10 to 100 Mbps. The UEN currently coordinates and supports the telecommunications needs of more than 300 community anchor institutions across Utah.
