Qwest says, "What's this fiber thing?"

First, Qwest actively campaigned against UTOPIA and its lightning-fast fiber. That didn't kill it. Then it sued UTOPIA, but that didn't kill it either. So now Qwest has announced that maybe it will have to consider, sigh, actually offering fiber to those annoying customers who like their internet speedy.

"Qwest later this month will reveal how much it intends to spend in Utah and where the new service will be available," the Trib reported. So what was the point of issuing a press release with no information in the first place? Could it be related to the current hearings on additional bonding for the UTOPIA fiber project? Nah, must be a coincidence.

Qwest wouldn't know fiber if Corning came up and bit them in the face.

I love to watch Jesse continue to post his propaganda. He says it's so important to him, yet he doesn't live in a UTOPIA city. UTOPIA is dying just like Provo. Just wait for the Provo city council meeting on the 28th and you'll hear the announcement that they're selling it. Maybe great ideas in concept, but the number just don't and won't work. Provo spent $39.5 million to make service available to about 30,000 addresses. UTOPIA has spent over $120 million to make service available to 42,000 addresses. UTOPIA is a joke. iProvo had a chance and they'll announce in a couple of weeks they can't make it work. UTOPIA wants to finance 33 year bonds. Monopolistic water and sewer bonds with little or no technological change in their industry bond for 20 years. Destined to fail. I can't wait to see who buys them in a couple of years when they finally figure it out. Paul Morris and Roger Black got out at the right time, too bad the cities haven't figured it out.

Speaking of Qwest, it only took me about a minute and a half to connect to your site

I can't wait for UTOPIA. I can't even get high speed internet access through QWEST. Too far from something? And I live in a three year old neighborhood. Looks like they need to work on their current infrastructure first, the morons.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
