LightHub Would Provide Fast, Reliable Internet to All City Residences and Position American Fork for a Brighter Future
AMERICAN FORK, UTAH – In an effort to address the frustrations many citizens have with unreliable, slow, and costly internet services, the City of American Fork has announced an initiative to create the necessary infrastructure for high speed fiber optic broadband. If enacted, the new WiFi service would be named LightHub. The goal is to provide everyone in the city, even in the most rural areas, with equal access to quality, affordable Internet for a modest utility charge. American Fork City Council will vote on a bond to fund the LightHub infrastructure in August. In the meantime, there will be an awareness campaign to educate residents and businesses about the economic and quality of life advantages fiber optic Internet could deliver to the community.
