Metronet is well on its way to bringing its 100 percent fiber optic network to Ankeny with installations coming to homes and businesses beginning this month. As Metronet progresses through its construction plan, customers in the initial construction areas may now sign up for Metronet installation. Those interested in Metronet services may visit www.Metronet.com/signup to receive construction updates, access presale information and check their address for installation.
“As one of Metronet’s first customers in Ankeny, I’ve had the opportunity to see first-hand how their 100 percent fiber optic network allows me to navigate online even faster than before,” said Murray Katter. “Metronet has been incredible to work with as they are gearing up to provide service to the rest of the community. I am excited for my neighbors to experience the difference.”
Ankeny customers may visit Metronet’s storefront in Ames to speak with customer care representatives, sign-up for services and schedule installation.
“We are delighted to add Ankeny to our list of cities that have been transformed by our high-speed fiber services,” said John Cinelli, Metronet CEO. “Metronet provides businesses and residents with the unique opportunity of plugging into ultra-fast internet that will increase their ability to live, work and play in a digital world.”
Metronet brings fiber optic services directly to homes and businesses in underserved communities in America with affordable, symmetrical upload and download 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 Ankeny, 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.
