“As one of Metronet’s first customers in Iowa City, I have been able to experience the impact that 100 percent fiber optic internet can have by making every aspect of being online easier and faster than before,” said Melissa Blum. “Metronet’s network has impressive upload and download speeds with no buffering and I’m excited for my neighbors to experience it for themselves.”
“As our construction in Iowa City continues, and now into the start of installations, we are thrilled to integrate into the community to provide future-proof internet to residents and businesses,” stated John Cinelli, Metronet CEO. “We look forward to serving more of Iowa City and seeing the growth and continued economic development that our network will support.”
Metronet brings fiber optic services directly to homes and businesses in underserved communities in America with affordable, symmetrical speeds up to 10 Gigabits with no long-term contracts. The company expects its network to be available to more than one million residential households and business locations in the near term, providing more service options to hundreds of communities.
As Metronet continues construction throughout Iowa City, residents in construction areas will receive communication by mail about construction activity in their neighborhood 30 days prior to beginning and the company provides additional messaging, such as yard signs, to let residents know when the temporary construction process is beginning in their neighborhood. Metronet crews are marked by ID tags and branded vehicles.
