  • Increasingly, broadband Internet service is viewed as a critical component of a nation or state’s physical infrastructure and a key driver of economic growth in the world’s most economically developed counties. Ensuring that the infrastructure necessary to provide broadband service is universally available and that all citizens who wish to subscribe are able to do so are policy goals of many governments. Universal availability is, for example, a policy goal set forth in the National Broadband Plan, issued in March 2010 in response to a congressional mandate.
  • The project will help identify critical unserved and underserved areas and populations. This information will help in the development of a statewide plan to expand affordable, reliable broadband services to every citizen of the state.
  • Updated every 6 months Current data is circa June 2010, submitted by us in October 2010. Emphasizes the importance of accuracy from the biannual state submission.

    6. 6. BROADBAND = critical infrastructure <ul><li>“ Like electricity a century ago, broadband is a foundation for economic growth, job creation, global competitiveness and a better way of life . It is enabling entire new industries and unlocking vast new possibilities for existing ones. It is changing how we educate children, deliver health care, manage energy, ensure public safety, engage government, and access, organize and disseminate knowledge.” </li></ul><ul><li>-National Broadband Plan, Federal Communications Commission, 2010 </li></ul>
    7. 7. Governor’s Economic Development Plan <ul><li>Vision : Utah will lead the nation as the best performing economy and be recognized as a premier global business destination. </li></ul><ul><li>Mission : Utah will excel in job creation, innovation, entrepreneurship, global business, and quality workforce and have a stable and sustainable business friendly environment. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Gov’s Economic Plan Objectives: <ul><li>Strengthen and grow existing Utah businesses, both urban and rural. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>**Increase business opportunities in rural Utah by identifying unserved and underserved high-speed Internet service areas and by developing a plan to extend broadband service statewide.** </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Increase innovation, entrepreneurship and investment. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase national and International business. </li></ul><ul><li>Prioritize education to develop the workforce of the future. </li></ul>

    10. 10. First Year Accomplishments <ul><li>Created and Released Utah Broadband Project Website : broadband.utah.gov . </li></ul><ul><li>Successfully produced the first-ever broadband map for the State of Utah. </li></ul><ul><li>Secured funding for additional projects and extension of the program from two to five years. </li></ul><ul><li>Held the Broadband Provider Roundtable , the first attempt in Utah to tackle broadband issues at the State-level by convening stakeholders and decision-makers. </li></ul><ul><li>Interfaced with other states ’ broadband projects to learn best practices and hear about innovate programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Received favorable press coverage and an E-Gov website award . </li></ul>
    11. 11. Second Year Goals <ul><li>Have a data review session with every broadband provider serving Utah. </li></ul><ul><li>Hit the road! Make local facilities visits to get updates from providers, meet with community leaders and learn more about Utah’s needs for deployment and adoption. </li></ul><ul><li>Release broadband demand study results and summary. </li></ul><ul><li>Create and convene the Utah Broadband Task Force , whose role will be to identify barriers to deployment and adoption, create regional coordination, and make recommendations for the State Broadband Plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Continue to interface with efforts in-state, out-of-state and nationally to promote broadband deployment and use. </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporate state and federal speed test data into the Utah Broadband Map. </li></ul>

    14. 14. The National Map <ul><li>“ When the map went live yesterday, the response was astounding, with the number of requests to the website averaging more than 1,000 per second! Below is just a short list of the metrics we observed on our first day; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Total hits yesterday: 158,123,884 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hits served by cache: 141,068,348 (89.21%) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Total Bytes Transferred: 863GB </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Peak Requests per Second: 8,970 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Average Requests per Second: 1,095 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Visits in the first 10 hours: over 500,000 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This phenomenal response shows that the investment of time, energy, and — not least of all — Congressional funds were well worth it. The National Broadband Map clearly has a market of interest, and we’re extremely proud to see that market being well served.” </li></ul><ul><li>-Michael Byrne </li></ul><ul><li>[FCC Mapping GURU] </li></ul><ul><li>February 18, 2011 </li></ul>
