Bandwidth will soon become more bountiful in the Utah city of the same name after community leaders have decided to partner with Utopia Fiber to build a fiber-to-the-home network, Bountiful Fiber.
Bountiful is a city of 45,000 and had to overcome opposition from the Utah Taxpayers Association, an anti-municipal broadband group, to get the final greenlight for a $43 million project. The city will issue revenue bonds to finance the project, which will be built and operated by Utopia Fiber. Utopia already operates networks passing over 100,000 homes and businesses in 50 Utah communities.
