Utah: "Payson signs on to UTOPIA; Cedar City says no, again"

As previously noted, Cedar City, Utah has declined to financially back the multi-city UTOPIA (Utah Telecommunication Open Infrastructure Agency) FTTH (fiber to the home) project but will remain a member of the UTOPIA consortium. Payson has voted to back the project.
"Cedar City Mayor Gerald Sherratt said, 'I regard this vote as one of the most unfortunate in the history of the city. We have 20 percent of our people at the poverty level. UTOPIA would have brought good wages to our city. ... People would have come here from everywhere.'"

Cedar City will still be able to build a UTOPIA network, but only after the cities backing it financially have completed their networks. Cedar City also will not have access to lower cost financing.
