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...
