November 03, 2021 – CHANHASSEN, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MetroNet today announced plans to bring symmetrical gigabit-speed internet service to Chanhassen’s homes and businesses. When complete, Chanhassen will become a Gigabit City, making ultra-high-speed internet service delivered through fiber optic connections available to a majority of Chanhassen homes and businesses. MetroNet, now available in more than a dozen Minnesota communities, will fully fund the 100 percent fiber optic network through a multi-million-dollar investment.
“We look forward to providing Chanhassen residents with sparkling 4k video streaming, glitch-free gaming, crystal-clear virtual meetings, and internet experiences of the future that we can only begin to imagine,” said John Cinelli, MetroNet’s CEO. “MetroNet is proud to add Chanhassen to our growing list of Gigabit Cities across Minnesota and the U.S.”
MetroNet’s two-year construction project in Chanhassen is planned to begin this fall, with customers able to receive service in the summer of 2022. As MetroNet’s construction begins, residents will receive communication by mail about activity in their neighborhood 30 days prior to starting. Additional messaging, such as yard signs and signs at neighborhood entry points, will be provided to let residents know when the construction process is about to begin in their area. MetroNet crews are identified by ID badges and use branded MetroNet vehicles.
Residents and businesses that are interested in MetroNet services may now visit www.MetroNetInc.com/construction to receive updates on when their address is eligible for installation and sign-up early for presales.
