Utah: More information from this week's Provo City Council meeting

The Salt Lake City Tribune has a good article with more information about the Provo City Council earlier this week. At this meeting, the Council decided to move ahead and seek bonding information for a probable decision in January to proceed with the iProvo FTTH (fiber to the home) project. This article has more information on the projects financials.

Provo is basing their business plan on only 33% penetration; that's a very low, conservative assumption and I am sure they will easily blow past this number, based on other cities' experiences, Provo's experience with its' earlier small pilot project and my own assessment of what I've seen of the utility's preparation (very, very thorough and professional).
