MetroNet, Fayetteville to Partner on Fiber Optic Network

MetroNet and the City of Fayetteville, North Carolina, will bring 100 percent fiber optic internet, television and phone services to businesses and residents in the region, marking MetroNet’s first deployment in the state.

Indiana-based MetroNet will spend more than $70 million on the project, which will service Fayetteville, along with surrounding towns of Eastover, Falcon, Godwin, Hope Mills, Linden, Spring Lake, Stedman, Vander and Wade. The network also will cover unincorporated Cumberland County, as well as portions of Hoke County.

“This tremendous investment brings unprecedented capabilities to existing businesses and gives Fayetteville the infrastructure and competitive edge needed to attract new business and grow jobs,” said City of Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the community’s need for increased broadband access has become more apparent, with virtual learning and remote work at the forefront. MetroNet’s high-speed fiber internet will increase technological capabilities throughout the county.
