Utah Education Network December 2012

The Utah Education Network (UEN) connects Utah school districts, schools, and higher education institutions to a robust network and provides quality educational resources. In spite of Utah’s size and extensive remote, rural areas, UEN is one of the nation’s most premiere education networks.

This month’s map shows the locations and connection speeds of the 813 sites where data and/or video broadband services are provided by the UEN.

The map also shows the locations of 120 sites for which UEN was able to add or enhance services through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant program . BTOP grants are administered by the NTIA and provide funding to deploy new broadband access to, or to improve existing broadband access for community anchor institutions.

The connections between the sites, color coded by bandwidth capacity, are represented schematically, and do not depict the actual geographic location of network paths.
