Not to be outdone by other fiber to the home projects like Google Fiber or Sonic.net, Utah's municipal fiber outfit Utopia has announced they'll soon be offering 1 Gbps connections
to every home they pass. Both XMission and Veracity Networks will offer the 1 gigabit-per-second connections for around $300 a month -- up from the maximum symmetrical 25 Mbps now offered. It seems unlikely that many customers will sign up for the blistering speed, but as with 1 Gbps offerings, it will certainly give regional incumbents Cox and CenturyLink something to worry about on the public relations and marketing front.
