That is not correct. Comcast is a service provider. UTOPIA is a cable company (fiber-optics) that is a conduit for a limited number of service providers. To use UTOPIA, a user must purchase service from one of the listed providers available through UTOPIA. They must pay the $20 monthly utility fee for a non-utility or an unapproved city tax, then purc...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Sagendorf’s letter (“UTOPIA is information highway robbery,” August 27) mentions Shurtleff and Swallow with a completely unrelated UTOPIA issue to raise hackles, not to provide helpful information. Now an apples to apples comparison is UTOPIA to Comcast. Now the UTOPIA management isn’t perfect, and may even be criminal; however it pales in comparison to the abuses committed by literally every other telecom (residential line provider) available in Utah.

Just say the word immigration and most GOP members of Congress either change the subject or scurry away.
