MetroNet and the City of Fayetteville are working to bring fiber optic internet, television and phone services to businesses and residents in the Fayetteville region.
The Indiana-based company 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.
MetroNet offers businesses and residents fiber optic networks connected directly to their homes and businesses.
The project is expected to take approximately two years to complete.
MetroNet plans to hire local market management positions, sales and customer service professionals, and service technicians to support the Fayetteville area.
