Technology infrastructure is critical to the
success of higher education. UETN plays an important
role supporting the network infrastructure of the
state’s colleges and universities. Institutions within
the Utah System of Higher Education are large
enterprises serving over 170,000 students a year.
The quality of those institutions depends on a solid
physical and technological infrastructure–not just in
instruction, but also research, campus life, public
safety and administration. The Utah System of
Higher Education values its partnership with UETN
in providing this critical support. Dr. David L. Buhler
Commissioner of Higher Education
Our connection to UETN is critical to improving access to care in support of the health and well-being of people
who live in and visit Sanpete County and central Utah.
UETN’s secure broadband infrastructure links our patients
and providers while saving money and improving lives.
We rely on UETN’s expertise to provide technical support,
resources, and consultation with multiple specialists.
UETN is a key asset in Gunnison Valley Hospital’s ability to offer cutting-edge care in central Utah. Mark Dalley
Administrator, Gunnison Valley Hospital
UETN’s statewide broadband, applications and resources are essential to our public schools, libraries, and higher education institutions. They help us deliver high quality instruction and conduct assessment over Utah’s vast distances. The Network also provides curriculum resources and the flexibility to deliver services that meet the individual needs of students, teachers and leaders as we seek to assure literacy and numeracy for all Utah children.
