STRATA Connects Manila to Fiber-Optic Network

By March 6, 2020December 15th, 2023No Comments

STRATA Networks announced that the infrastructure has been completed to connect Manila High School and Uintah Basin Medical Center’s Manila Health Clinic to their fiber-optic network, giving those facilities access to gigabit internet speeds and the capacity to grow.

Connecting Daggett County to STRATA’s fiber-optic network has been an extensive project made possible by the collaboration of the Utah Education & Telehealth Network (UETN), STRATA Networks, Utah Department of Transportation, and the Daggett School District. Construction began in 2018 and, once complete, STRATA’s fiber route will extend into Dutch John and will serve the students and staff at Flaming Gorge Elementary School as well.

“Bringing broadband to Manila High School is a milestone in connecting Utah’s most remote locations to the full potential of online education & healthcare,” said Ray Timothy, CEO and Executive Director of UETN. “Students and educators will be able to download high-definition video and participate in live, high-quality video conferencing and other data-intensive applications without interruption or delay. The fiber project also brings needed bandwidth to the Manila Clinic of Uintah Basin Medical Center (UBMC). As a result, Daggett residents and visitors will also benefit. We are pleased to collaborate with STRATA and Daggett School District to make this a reality.”

As part of this project, STRATA’s new fiber path will also benefit others along the route including state and federal entities such as the Utah Department of Transportation, Bureau of Reclamation, and the Forest Service, as well as several other private entities. It will also improve cellular speeds and coverage available to wireless customers. STRATA’s core focus for this project, however, has been connecting the schools in the Manila and Dutch John communities; and they anticipate that the fiber build to Flaming Gorge Elementary School will be completed later this year.

“Access to high-speed internet has transformed from being a convenience to a necessity – especially in education and healthcare,” said Bruce Todd, STRATA Networks CEO/General Manager. “We are proud of the partnership that STRATA and UETN have formed in order to make fiber internet accessible to even the most remote areas in our region, and are very appreciative of the cooperation from UDOT, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Forest Service who helped with the permitting, allowing the project to proceed within a timely process. We are excited for the new opportunities this will bring to Daggett County and we look forward to seeing the community and economic developments that will come from it.”
