Lt. Governor to join in on South Central Communications’ Fiber to-the-premises groundbreaking June 2, 2014

Move over Provo and Google, Kanab is taking its place as a new player in the Fiber-To-The-Premises revolution.  South Central Communications' CEO, Michael East announced that South Central Communications will be breaking ground on its Fiber-To-The-Premises project June 26. Assisting in the ceremony will be Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox. According to East, "The Lt. Governor will be operating the tractor as we place the first conduit." This will be an exciting opportunity to meet the Lt. Governor and watch as he gets his hands dirty on the project.

The fiber optic project is expected to have long lasting benefits for the Southern Utah area. According to East, "Benefits will be felt by every citizen of Kanab. Improvements in every day Internet usage speeds will be just part of the equation. Entertainment, telemedicine, virtual classrooms, and government operations as well as others will all realize game-changing improvements in data transfer across the board." East continues, "Not only will Fiber-To-The-Premises bring gigabit per second Internet speeds to everyone in the area, it will also create new jobs through an environment attractive to technology dependent businesses.  No longer will Internet bottlenecks be an obstacle for business, with these kinds of speeds, our network will be a business driver." East reports, "We're spending $110 million on this project throughout Southern and Central Utah, with an estimated overall economic impact reaching $660 million for the area. We're very excited about this project and this technology; it should open new doors for our residential and commercial customers alike."

In the past, Internet speeds were limited by proximity to relay stations and subject to data degradation as distance from the source increased. Fiber optic cable virtually eliminates the loss of data over distance while increasing speeds by 200 percent compared to average connection speeds.  The project is starting in Kanab and will eventually reach every home, business and building in South Central Communications' service area.

All citizens including children from Kanab and the surrounding areas are invited to attend the groundbreaking event which will be held at the South Central Communications office located at 318 N. 100 E., in Kanab on Thursday, June 26, 2:00 P.M. Snack and drinks will be provided as well as a good look at the equipment used to install the network.
