MetroNet’s COVID-19 Response & Resources
The services MetroNet provides are of critical value to the communities we serve, and due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we realize your household’s needs for reliable internet may change in the coming weeks. We want to assure you, our 100% fiber-optic network was built for critical times such as these, as your demand for faster connections and more bandwidth may increase, due to more devices being online, allowing you to work from home, complete online classwork, and fill the downtimes while streaming, surfing, and gaming.
Here’s how we are responding:
Ensuring Health & Safety
In the midst of our nation’s response to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) we want you to know MetroNet is committed to the safety of our customers and associates. We are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), government agencies, and our own internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation.
