iProvo finally surpassed the 10,000 subscriber mark amid some big plans for the network. According to the Daily Herald, the city is currently negotiating to bring in up to three more service providers and possibly hire DynamicCity (now PacketFront) to help manage the network and improve its financials. The new service providers petitioning to join include Emery Telcom, FiberNet and Utah's own Xmission.
We also learn from the article that the county attorney is looking at filing criminal charges against HomeNet principals for their forged letter of credit. The city only found out it was a fake when they tried to redeem it in 2005 to cover money owed to the city. The FBI was approached but declined to take the case citing the relatively small size of the scam. Provo City Councilman George Stewart took the opportunity to grandstand on the matter claiming that the issue should have been discussed privately with the Council. Call me crazy, but I don't recall Mr. Stewart being a detective by trade.
