UTOPIA Fiber (Utah Telecommunication Open Infrastructure Agency) has completed an impressive business and fiber-to-the-home project in Layton City. UTOPIA Fiber is a fiber optic infrastructure owned by 11 Utah cities. Utilizing light to transfer information, it’s the fastest Internet and communication technology currently available.
The city’s 84,500 residents and businesses have access to the fastest internet speeds in the nation. Layton is among the first cities in Utah, and in the nation, to be fully connected to fiber. Layton had the vision to anticipate what fiber could mean for its community. The city is now reaping the benefits of city-wide fiber availability.
Most current networks operate on copper wire infrastructure that limits the speed and amount of information that can be transferred. But with UTOPIA, businesses and residents can reach speeds 30 times faster than a typical Internet connection with their own dedicated fiber connection to every location. Plus, you enjoy the same fast-as-light performance for parallel download and upload speeds. This UTOPIA video tour by Snazzy Labs showcases the fiber internet company’s operations and shows how its fast fiber internet service works.
UTOPIA is structured to integrate new technology as it is developed in the future, minimizing the risk of obsolescence and allowing for increased capabilities. UTOPIA is also compatible with wireless connections where necessary or requested.
UTOPIA also makes new technologies more feasible through high-speed connections, such as distance education; real-time video conferencing; telecommuting; home businesses operations; interactive gaming; remote data storage and retrieval; home automation; security and virtual reality.
UTOPIA lets you choose your own service providers so you’re not limited to just one option. The connection to your business or home is also yours alone. You will never lose speed through a shared connection with another home or business.
Not only does UTOPIA deliver incredibly fast speeds, but their network is also built for extremely high volume. UTOPIA can provide a minimum of 250Mbps connection to every home and up to 100Gbps connection to businesses. These connection speeds are base speeds that can increase according to individual needs.
Fiber connectivity cements Layton City as a great place to live, work, and play. There is a huge wave of support from Layton residents and businesses, who want the astonishing speed and capacity that UTOPIA service provides.
