The article reports that HomeNet Communications Inc. has launched voice, video and data services over the fiber-rich "iProvo" municipal network in Utah. HomeNet's service package includes a 10 Mbps data service, video-on-demand and digital broadcast programming and IP telephony. HomeNet is bundling services in the range of 89.99 dollar to 124.99 dollar per month. The service will apply competitive pressure on the area's two incumbent service providers: Comcast Cable and Qwest Communications International Inc. HomeNet initially is offering service to about 5,000 homes in the Grandview area. The full iProvo fiber-to-the-home rollout is scheduled for completion by July 2006.
