Maybe service is different in different areas of the city. I've had
UTOPIA with Xmission in Orem for over a year now, and it's been bliss.
There were a 2 or 3 outages during the first 6 months, but since then
I've had no problems at all. I've been using Vonage since getting on
UTOPIA, and my wife is perfectly happy with it. Which is a lot more
than I can say for our neighbors who have MStar's VOIP service...
