The company was chosen by city officials to construct a state-of-the-art fiber optic network throughout the two communities, providing symmetrical speeds up to 1 Gig for residential customers and up to 5 Gigs for business customers.

Construction on the all-fiber network is scheduled to begin in June and will ultimately connect more than 330 residential and business customers by mid-September.

The Ogden community looks forward to working with Sparklight,” said Ogden Mayor Sandra Furlow. “Reliable internet is a much-needed service in our community.”
