Metronet is to connect the City of Altamonte Springs and Sioux City with fibre optic internet connectivity.

Construction is already underway in the City of Altamonte Springs through a multimillion-dollar investment, that will see Metronet will fully fund the infrastructure across Altamonte Springs and the surrounding communities.

“As Metronet expands to service more communities throughout the Sunshine State, we are excited to bring our 100 percent fibre optic infrastructure directly to the homes and businesses in Altamonte Springs,” said John Cinelli, CEO of Metronet.

“The community will soon be able to experience a future-proof network with access to multi-gigabit symmetrical upload and download speeds in a time when fast, reliable access has become critical.”

The Metronet fibre optic internet network in Sioux City is now available to residents who can now access multi-gigabit speeds of up to 2Gbs while businesses can access speeds up to 10Gbs.

We understand the impact that a fibre optic network like ours can mean for a community. By connecting our customers, they can connect easier and faster to family, friends, and neighbours, near and far.”
