MetroNet and the City of Fayetteville Announce Partnership to Build 100% Fiber Optic Network
MetroNet and the City of Fayetteville will bring 100% fiber optic internet, television and phone services to businesses and residents in the Fayetteville region, marking MetroNet’s first deployment in North Carolina. Indiana-based MetroNet will spend more than $70 million on the project, which will service Fayetteville, the towns of Hope Mills, Linden, Wade, Stedman, Godwin, Eastover, Falcon, Spring Lake, Vander and much of unincorporated Cumberland County, as well as portions of Hoke County, such as the communities of Raeford and Rockfish.

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

MetroNet offers businesses and residents state-of-the-art, fiber optic networks connected directly to their homes and businesses. The fast-growing company is known for its reliable, high-speed internet friendly service, and fair pricing with no long-term contracts.

Projects of this size typically take approximately two years. In new MetroNet markets, residents will receive communication by mail about construction activity in their neighborhood 30 days prior to starting, and the company provides additional messaging, such as yard signs, to let residents know when the temporary construction process is beginning in their neighborhood.

Those who would like to learn more about the construction process can visit to see progress throughout their community. The company will have a MetroNet storefront located in Fayetteville to serve as the command center for customer service and sales. Customers will be able to visit the store to speak with customer service representatives and sign up for services.

Additionally, MetroNet plans to hire local market management positions, sales and customer service professionals, and service technicians to support the Fayetteville area. For those interested in joining the MetroNet team, visit to search available positions and submit applications.
