The POWDER-RENEW project is a collaboration between the University of Utah, Rice University and Salt Lake City, with broad support from community, municipal and state leadership. The POWDER advanced wireless research platform will cover 2.3 square miles of the University of Utah campus, 1.2 square miles of downtown Salt Lake City, and a two-mile corridor in between, reaching a potential population of 40,000 people. The map below reflects current-day deployment.
