The Utah Broadband Project, a department under the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), has launched its new website.
The new site allows residents, broadband providers, government and business leaders and others to more easily navigate the site’s most-used sections. They can also attain information the Utah Broadband Project provides by highlighting the site’s most commonly-used features.
“As more people rely on the Utah Broadband Project for broadband-related news and information, we knew we needed a better way to display the wealth of information we provide,” said Tara Thue, manager of the Utah Broadband Project. “The upgraded interactivity of the Utah Broadband Project’s website enhances the online face of the state’s efforts to accelerate reliable, and redundant, broadband access throughout the state.”
New functionality and enhanced features include comprehensive information on broadband availability and resources as well as upgrades that improve browsing from mobile devices.
The site’s interactive map has also been upgraded for cross-platform usability, and in addition to area and address searches, results on the map can now be filtered by provider, speed and a number of technology types (cable, DSL, fiber, fixed and mobile wireless).
For the latest industry news, the Project’s social media are now displayed more prominently on the homepage, where visitors can also easily subscribe to the project’s monthly newsletter, take a speed test and access information about the Utah Broadband Advisory Council. The Council meets bimonthly to help coordinate broadband adoption and deployment efforts in the State of Utah.
