ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL – Metronet, the country’s biggest independently-owned, 100% fiber optic internet provider, has announced that the City of Altamonte Springs will soon have access to its ultra-high-speed 100% fiber optic internet, as construction has officially begun. Through a substantial investment, Metronet will fully finance the infrastructure that will connect multi-gigabit fiber optic internet directly to homes and businesses throughout Altamonte Springs and the surrounding areas.
The construction of Metronet’s ultra-high-speed fiber optic internet has officially begun on the west side of Altamonte Springs, near the Springs Oaks area, and is expected to take two years to complete. The first customers will have access to the service this spring as the construction expands rapidly throughout the city. As the construction progresses, interested customers can sign up for presale on metronet.com, which will indicate their interest and prioritize service installation in their area once available. This website also allows customers to be notified once their address becomes available for installation and to access presale.
“As Metronet expands to service more communities throughout the Sunshine State, we are excited to bring our 100 percent fiber optic infrastructure directly to the homes and businesses in Altamonte Springs,” said John Cinelli, Metronet CEO. “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.”
Metronet trucks will be visible in Altamonte Springs as construction progresses. Residents will receive notifications by mail 30 days before work begins in their neighborhood and additional notifications, such as yard signs, will also be provided. Metronet crews can be identified by ID tags and vehicles bearing the Metronet logo. Residents can visit construction.metronetinc.com for updates on the construction.
Metronet is seeking to fill local market management, sales and customer service, and fiber service technician positions in the Altamonte Springs area. Interested candidates can visit FiberSplicer.jobs to view available job openings and submit their applications.
