MSTAR has launched a symmetric 10 Mbps data service in Orem, Utah via the fiber-rich Utah Telecommunications Open Infrastructure Agency (UTOPIA) network.
The service, marketed as MSTARmetro, sells for $39.95 per month and will cross swords with incumbent service providers Comcast Cable and Qwest.
MSTAR plans to offer a 100 Mbps service “in the coming months.”
MSTAR marks the first local service provider to tap UTOPIA, a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) project architected by DynamicCity.
In addition to Orem, other UTOPIA members include Brigham City, Lindon, Perry, Cedar City, Midvale, Riverton, Cedar Hills, Murray, Tremonton, Centerville, West Valley City, Layton, and Payson.
