Metronet Service Installation Now Available to Residents and Businesses
Metronet today announced that Jacksonville’s residents and businesses now have access to Metronet’s multi-gigabit speeds with service installation available now. As Metronet becomes available throughout the Jacksonville area, residents will have the opportunity to tap into multi-gigabit speeds up to 2 gigabits; and businesses with access may choose speeds up to 10 gigabits. Customers located in Metronet's initial construction areas may now sign up for installation by visiting shop.metronet.com or calling 888-225-3864.
“As Metronet brings service to our first Jacksonville customers, they will quickly see the impact of life-changing multi-gigabit speeds unlike anything they have experienced before,” said John Autry, Metronet Regional Sales Manager, Community Development. “With access to reliable, 100 percent fiber optic internet, Jacksonville’s residents and businesses now have the opportunity to scale to higher speeds through an infrastructure that will support the community well into the future.”
As construction continues throughout Jacksonville, 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.
