In 2002, a group of Utah cities got together to build a state-of-the-art fiber optic network, a technology infrastructure that would give residents high-speed, high-quality Internet. Ten years later, only about 10,000 homes currently subscribe to the service, well short of the 50,000 envisioned. A recent legislative audit recommends better management of the project and fiscal controls, prompting calls to pass the project on to the private sector. On Thursday, we’ll discuss the ups and downs of the UTOPIA project and how to move forward.
