LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Researchers at Utah State University and the University of Utah soon could be able to share large amounts of data through a high-speed network connection.

The plan is the first step in the larger "Utah Grid" effort to link the state's public universities.

The Utah Education Network is seeking funding from the Legislature for the link between the two schools. UEN is a group of colleges and nonprofit organizations that promotes technology in education.

Louisiana, New York and Alaska have the network connections in place at their universities.
