About Utopian Wireless
Founded in 2006, Utopian Wireless was created upon the premise that rural communities, like their urban counterparts, should have access to wireless broadband services. Utopian Wireless focuses on building wireless networks in fourth and fifth tier markets where consumers are currently underserved by broadband service providers. By utilizing otherwise unused spectrum in the 2.5GHz range, Utopian Wireless is building community WiMAX networks capable of providing reliable, fast, portable Internet broadband connectivity for reasonable rates in underserved areas.
Utopian Wireless focuses on building community networks primarily in fourth and fifth tier markets. These include communities and towns that other high‑speed Internet service providers have avoided due to low population density. The service providers have decided it is not worth the sizeable investment in infrastructure to bring broadband access to these areas. For this reason, many fourth and fifth tier markets are currently without any broadband services at all, and others are forced to submit to the exorbitantly high rates of their community’s sole source broadband provider. Utopian Wireless offers consumers living in these areas another broadband access option.
Proposed Service Plans
Utopian Wireless plans to offer two different service plans:
Business Plan (3-5Mbps down/1-2 Mbps up): The Business Plan is designed for small to medium sized businesses, or residential users with a major appetite for broadband. It provides continuous high‑speed Internet access throughout the workplace or home and allows up to 20 standard email addresses for company employees.
Residential Plan (1-3 Mbps down/0.5-1 Mbps up): The Residential Plan is ideal for customers who have basic broadband requirements. The Residential Plan provides customers with 24‑7 high‑speed wireless Internet access. Simply plug a Utopian Wireless modem into your PC or wireless card into your laptop for unlimited Internet access anywhere within Utopian Wireless’ geographic service area.
