MetroNet Announces Grand Opening of Tallahassee

Sponsored by Businesswire

MetroNet today announced the grand opening of the Tallahassee market with a ribbon cutting at the first MetroNet storefront in the state of Florida. The Tallahassee storefront is located at 1779 Apalachee Parkway, Suite 109, Tallahassee, FL 32301, and is only a few steps away from other large retailers such as BJ’s Brewhouse and Dick’s Sporting Goods. The storefront will allow customers to learn more about 100 percent fiber optic connections to their home or business with incredible bandwidth allowing for faster internet speeds.

“This past year shined a great light on how vital internet access is, as more people than ever before worked and learned from home,” said Mayor John Dailey. “I’m proud of the action we have taken through the City Commission to help increase broadband availability in Tallahassee and boost economic development, which has led to innovative solutions that attract new business, support existing ones and benefit local residents. MetroNet’s continued investment in our community shows the progress we are making, and I’m proud to celebrate with them as they reach this next milestone.”

The Evansville, IN.-based company began constructing its state-of-the-art fiber network in 2019. MetroNet builds fiber to the premises networks directly connecting homes and businesses to high-speed, symmetrical internet that allows users to upload as quickly as they download over fiber optic strands.

“We are thrilled to announce the official grand opening of MetroNet in Tallahassee, and to provide high-speed fiber optic internet to Tallahassee neighborhoods,” said MetroNet Executive Vice President Kevin Stelmach. “The Tallahassee community has been incredible to work alongside. We are excited to provide this community with services that will continue to support remote working, online learning and local businesses.”

Alongside a team of engineering students from Florida State University and Florida A&M University, and a certified arborist, MetroNet was able to make progress through the $75 million build while protecting the Tallahassee tree canopy. With this team, MetroNet was able to survey and protect every single tree throughout the build of the 100 percent fiber optic network. This team has allowed MetroNet the opportunity to provide the City of Tallahassee with unparalleled services while protecting an important and unique asset to the community.

MetroNet provides customers with a future-proof fiber optic network that allows businesses and residents to have access to the fastest internet speeds available in a time when access to reliable internet is necessary. With MetroNet’s symmetrical speeds to and from the home or business, customers can conveniently stream, work and learn from home.
