“We have been inundated with requests from consumers and businesses to sign up for MetroNet’s 100 percent fiber optic speeds and we’re excited to bring it to them,” said Kevin Stelmach, MetroNet executive VP/general manager. “Putting a great team in place who can deliver the level of customer service for which MetroNet is known for is the next step in bringing Lexington into the digital future.”

In late 2017, the City of Lexington announced its intention to become the nation’s largest gigabit city and introduced MetroNet.

MetroNet began construction in early 2018 of a $70 million high-speed, 100 percent fiber optic network that places Lexington among cities in the work with the highest average internet speeds. The first customer hookups are expected by the end of 2018. MetroNet plans to open a retail storefront in Lexington at the end of this month. MetroNet was recently named one of the nation’s fastest growing Internet Service Providers by PCMag.com.
