BELLBROOK, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Metronet today announced that construction of its ultra-high-speed 100% fiber optic network has officially begun in Bellbrook.

Upon completion of Metronet’s state-of-the-art multi-gigabit network, Bellbrook will join the country’s internet elite as a Certified Gigabit City.

Construction has begun in the northwest corner of the city near Possum Run Road and will expand rapidly throughout the community with the first customers expected to be connected by the fall of 2023.
