(KSL News) The first company to provide digital cable TV, phone and Internet services to Provo may have landed the contract illegally.

The Deseret Morning News reports HomeNet Communications' bookkeeper is being accused of forging a $50,000 letter of credit to prove the company's finances in 2004.

That document was required for the company to be awarded the i-Provo project contract, worth about $40 million.

The deal gave HomeNet a period of exclusive access to the city's fiber-optic cables. HomeNet filed for bankruptcy in 2005.
