The Deseret News ran a brief article on UTOPIA that, while light on a lot of specifics, includes their current subscriber growth rate and goals for subscriber growth. According to the article, they’re adding 300-400 new subscribers per month and plan to double or triple that number in 2009. I’ve also heard that in Tremonton, their door-to-door campaign resulted in an impressive 50% take rate.
It’s good that UTOPIA has some public goals and accomplishments, but there still needs to be more public disclosure so that we can all evaluate how things are going. Hopefully they’ll be able to show big gains in other areas Real Soon Now(TM).
“It’s good that UTOPIA has some public goals and accomplishments, but there still needs to be more public disclosure so that we can all evaluate how things are going.”
Completely agree. As Elvis famously put it:
“A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfactioning me”
“The system is now growing at a rate of 300 to 400 subscribers per month.”
As if !..would luv 2c those figures substantiated on paper!In fact, I think WE ALL WOULD !! I personally know diff from ppl who work in the field nd it aint so.
This entire “article’ smacks of a self written press release and has already garnered more respect than it deserves.
Propaganda, pure & simple.
UTOPIA, it’s time for more disclosure. Yes, some things need to be kept close, but it’s time to release public benchmarks on where UTOPIA needs to be to be financially viable, how many more subscribers it needs, updated projected take-rates, etc.
We also need updated info on deployment plans. When will it be available in Layton, for example?
their was a whole bunch of construction workers by the utopia shack here in layton today looked like they was putting more hardware in their was a hard green(2-3refigerator sized) box that it looked like they was putting just outside of the shack. any idea what that could be?
One of my co-workers noticed the movement in Layton also. I don’t know if it was at the shack Luminous talks about or just in general.
