Connext Breaks Ground on Fruit Heights Fiber Project, Expands Infrastructure Across Northern Utah


FRUIT HEIGHTS CITY, Utah February 22, 2023 --- Utah based fiber optic ISP Connext Internet Services officially broke ground in Fruit Heights today as the locally owned and operated fiber specialist continues to expand the fiber infrastructure across Northern Utah. The groundbreaking festivities were held last evening during the heavy snow event in conjunction with the city’s monthly council meeting. City residents and Council Members braved the storm to take part in this historic occasion. Connext officials hosted an open forum for in the council chambers immediately following the groundbreaking, giving residents the opportunity to learn more about Connext and their fiber installation process.


The Fruit Heights City Fiber Project will bring the speed and reliability of fiber optic internet to over 2700 households across the city. This is only a portion of a much larger initiative that Connext is embarking on that will ultimately connect residents to fiber internet from Box Elder County south through the Salt Lake Valley. 


“We're excited to be starting in Fruit Heights. We’ve had amazing community involvement. The level of excitement at the groundbreaking, even with the weather, was an indicator of the support we are receiving across the community. We're looking forward to getting everyone connected!”  -Connext CEO David Brown  


The initial Fruit Heights Fiber Project construction efforts will commence in the neighborhoods along Laurelwood Dr. west of I-89 and expand both north and south from there. These areas were selected for the infrastructure construction to begin first as the residents showed the highest level of interest. Fruit Height residents are encouraged to visit Connext’s website at to submit their information. This will allow the Connext team to gauge interest levels in each neighborhood as construction will progress next in the areas the interest is highest. 


“In less than two years we've built the infrastructure for more than 20,000 homes... and this is just the beginning! We plan to double the homes passed each month from 1,500 homes to more than 3,000 homes a month this year. The support we have received as a local company is huge. We are actively building in 7 cities right now and have franchise agreements with many more. We're excited to see the impact this is having on our local communities!”

-Connext CEO David Brown

Check out what our customers are saying about Connext Internet


"I recently made a switch from Ubiquity Internet, which I constantly had issues with. Connext made the switch easy. They came out the next day after I made the phone call to set up the installation. I have had one trouble ticket since the install and the technician was able to come out the same day and took care of the issue. Connext is very responsive, easy to get a hold of on the phone (talking to a real person), and I feel like the internet service is a very good value for $30 per month. I would definitely recommend using Connext! I wish I would have known about them in the beginning and saved some time and money having to switch from another internet provider."
