The actual Wi-Fi speed will not be at UTOPIA’s full capacity, due to limitations in wireless transmitting equipment. But city officials say it is noticeably fast.
UTOPIA, with the help of a $16 million federal grant, has deployed fiber communications to Layton's educational, government and health care facilities in the past 18 months.
UTOPIA, or the Utah Telecommunications Open Infrastructure Agency, is a fiber-optic network supported by its member communities.
