Qwest has apparently started soliciting bids for new fiber equipment for a new major project, quite possibly a new fiber network designed to compete with projects like UTOPIA. They've already been trying out fiber in the South Jordan subdivision of Daybreak, and this would be a major escalation likely designed to try going head-to-head with UTOPIA and iProvo. The municipal projects, however, have a very large lead on deployment. Qwest will be left playing catch-up for years, especially since UTOPIA can flip a switch to up the bandwidth. Does Qwest have a chance? With their history of high prices and poor service, this seems like a case of too little, too late.
