December 6, 2004 Salt Lake City -- HomeNet Communications has officially launched its integrated triple-play services over part of the first phase of the iProvo municipal fiber project in Provo, UT.

HomeNet Communications is offering Provo citizens and businesses integrated voice, video, and data packages that include up to 10-Mbit/sec Internet connections, digital television with video on demand (VOD) and parental controls, and digital telephone (VoIP) service with unlimited calls to anywhere in the United States and Canada.

"The HomeNet integrated triple-play service available to iProvo users is by far one of the best deals in town for high-speed Internet, cable and television, and telephone service," said Bob Murtagh, chief operations officer and vice president of sales for HomeNet Communications. "Last time I checked, a regular 256-kbit/sec DSL connection from a large cable or phone company costs between $30 and $40 per month. HomeNet users with iProvo can get 512-kbit/sec Internet connections on the low end and 10-Mbit/sec connections on the high end with phone packages that let them call anywhere in Canada or the United States for one reasonable price.

"The point is, consumers no longer have to settle for overpriced and archaic phone, Internet, or television services offered by large phone and cable companies. Municipal fiber projects like iProvo are springing up all over the country because they will attract businesses and grow local economies."

HomeNet Communications services will be available by January 2005 to all of Provo's 3000-plus households in the Grandview neighborhood, where more than 250 homes have been testing HomeNet services since early 2004. Full completion of the iProvo municipal fiber project is scheduled for July 2006.
