Metronet, a 100 percent fiber-optic broadband services provider headquartered in Evansville, Indiana, this month announced that residents and businesses in the North Carolina communities of Fayetteville, Greenville and Raeford are the first in the state to have access to faster internet via the provider’s ultra-high-speed multi-gigabit service.
In addition to Metronet’s current offerings of 1 gigabit per second, speeds up to 2 gigabits are now available for residents of the newly served communities, and businesses may choose speeds up to 10 gigabits. All Metronet speeds are symmetrical, vital for high quality video conferencing, gaming and online learning, as noted by the provider.
According to a press release, the updates to multi-gigabit speeds were made with no disruption to current Fayetteville, Greenville, and Raeford infrastructure. Those interested in upgrading to Metronet’s multi-gigabit speeds may upgrade online at shop.metronet.com.
John Cinelli, Metronet CEO, commented:
“Metronet is proud to officially deploy access to multi-gigabit speeds to our communities in North Carolina. Multi-gigabit speeds will change the way the communities we serve spend their time online from the office and at home. These communities now have access to the fastest internet speeds available that will improve the quality of internet service and way of life. Fayetteville, Greenville, and Raeford are supported by a future-proof infrastructure that has the ability to scale to even faster speeds, supporting the continued growth and economic development of each community for decades.”
