What is the UTN Network?

  • Utah Telehealth Network (UTN) operates a secure, reliable, and affordable network connecting hospitals, clinics, and health departments across the state.
  • UTN contracts with multiple telecommunication service providers in local communities to provide fiber or microwave services to participating healthcare facilities. Every facility on the network is connected with a minimum connection speed of 1 Gbps.
  • UTN operates as a consortium in the FCC’s Rural healthcare (RHC) healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) program, which provides significant discounts on telecommunication services for eligible rural healthcare facilities, making connectivity much more affordable.
  • The HCF program provides a 65% discount on all one-time and ongoing telecommunications costs. UTN has been using this program for new and existing sites since 2016.
