Utah: Qwest bypassing 18 city councils to kill UTOPIA in legislature

UTOPIA is an 18-city initiative in Utah to build municipally-owned, open access FTTH networks. In the last 2 weeks, the Utah Senate approved SB-66, the UTOPIA-killer bill crafted by telephone monopoly Qwest, with some modifications. The House version is out of committee and now on the state House calendar for consideration. Live debate can be hear on-line when it occurs.

Recent UTOPIA news headlines:

Note: The Spectrum is pro-UTOPIA, the Deseret News anti-UTOPIA and the Tribune is very anti-UTOPIA (to the point of somewhat biased reporting)
