Metronet Set to Launch Killeen Construction, Deploying Fiber Optic Internet

Killeen, TX - March 25, 2024 - Metronet announced today that residents and businesses throughout the City of Killeen will soon have access to Metronet’s ultra-high-speed 100% fiber optic internet. Through Metronet’s multimillion-dollar investment, Killeen will join other Texas communities in experiencing the benefits of multi-gigabit infrastructure. Metronet has officially commenced pre-construction activities in Killeen in preparation for its 2-year construction process, with the first customers in Killeen expected to be connected by the fall of 2024.

Earlier this month, Metronet also began construction in neighboring Copperas Cove. Upon completion, Killeen and Copperas Cove will proudly join the nation's leading internet hubs as a Certified Gigabit City Powered by Metronet.

“Killeen eagerly awaits the arrival of Metronet, heralding a new era of enhanced connectivity and competition within our community," declared Mayor Debbie Nash-King. "In an age where reliable internet access is paramount, Killeen will benefit greatly, empowering our residents and businesses with the tools they need for growth and success."

“As pioneers in broadband innovation, we are unwavering in our commitment to elevate the digital experience for Killeen,” said Dave Heimbach, Metronet President & CEO. “This endeavor epitomizes our steadfast belief in the transformative potential of fast, reliable connectivity to propel communities towards prosperity. With Killeen poised to join our rapidly expanding Texas network, we eagerly anticipate the boundless opportunities this connection will unlock, catalyzing sustained economic growth and enriching lives across the region.”

As construction prepares to begin, Killeen residents will see Metronet trucks throughout the area. Residents will receive communication by mail about construction activity in their neighborhood 30 days prior to starting. Additional messaging, such as yard signs, will also be provided to notify residents of when construction is beginning in their neighborhood. Metronet crews are identified by ID tags and branded Metronet vehicles. Residents and businesses interested in Metronet services may visit metronet.com/check-availability to indicate interest and to receive updates on construction.

Metronet plans to hire local market management positions, sales and customer service professionals and service technicians to support the Killeen area. Those interested in joining the Metronet team can visit metronet.com/careers to search available positions and to submit applications.
