Utah: "Tremonton Wants UTOPIA"

Utah: "Tremonton Wants UTOPIA"

From David Fletcher's Government and Technology Weblog:
"In preparing to rollout a community broadband network in 17 different Utah communities, UTOPIA commissioned a feasability study to determine what the potential "take rate" of households would be in each municipality.  The result was a spread that portrayed the potential adoption rate with a max, min, and likely rate.  With a maximum rate of 92% and a likely rate of 76%, it appears that Tremonton holds the greatest potential.  It is a smaller town and probably has fewer broadband alternatives than some of the other UTOPIA members, but it is very interesting to see the potential for broadband service in that kind of rural, agricultural setting.  Overall, the likely rate for all UTOPIA cities is 58%.  The potential for success looks good."

UTOPIA is the big multi-municipality FTTH (fiber to the home) project in Utah.
