Utah: Tech industry executives endorse UTOPIA

In a letter to mayors and city councils of the 18 UTOPIA cities, a group, TechNet, representing the leadership of much of America's high tech industry strongly advocated the cities back the multi-city UTOPIA FTTH (fiber to the home) project:
"We strongly endorse the UTOPIA city fiber project and wish you well in bringing it to a successful launch in 2004"

The project faces strong opposition from incumbent monopolies Qwest and Comcast and their allies in the legislature. They seek to prevent competition for telecommunications services.

More about TechNet:
"TechNet is a bipartisan network of CEO's that promotes the growth of Technology Industries and the Economy by building long-term relationships between Technology Leaders and Policymakers and advocating a targeted policy agenda. TechNet's mission is to build bipartisan support for policies that strengthen America's leadership of the New Economy. The organization comprises more than 200 chief executive officers and senior partners of companies in the fields of information technology, biotechnology, venture capital, investment banking and law. TechNet leadership includes senior executives from Cisco, Intel, Hewlett Packard, J.P. Morgan and Palm Inc."
