Metronet Service Installation Now Available to Residents and Businesses
Metronet today announced that residents and businesses throughout New Bern can now power up with Metronet’s multi-gigabit internet speeds with service installation now available. In addition to Metronet’s current offerings of 1 gigabit per second, speeds up to 2 gigabits are now available for residents; businesses may choose speeds of up to 10 gigabits. Customers located in Metronet’s initial construction areas may now sign up to be installed by visiting shop.metronet.com.
“Residents and businesses can now connect to the speeds they need, in a time when fast, reliable internet is vital,” said John Autry, Regional Sales Manager, Community Development. “With a direct positive impact on New Bern’s continued growth and economic development, Metronet’s future-proof infrastructure now provides the city with access to the fastest multi-gigabit internet service available.”
As construction continues, residents in construction areas will receive 30 days advance notice by mail about construction activity in their neighborhood. Metronet provides additional messaging, such as yard signs, to notify residents of when construction is beginning in their neighborhood. Metronet crews are marked by ID tags and branded vehicles.
