Metronet Begins Construction of $20 Million Fiber Optic Network in Sioux City | Local company

SIOUX CITY — A two-year construction project to bring new fiber optic Internet service to Sioux City is currently underway.

Indiana-based Metronet began work Tuesday on its fully-funded, $20 million fiber-optic network that will provide residents and businesses in the city with high-speed internet access.

Currently, construction is underway near Singing Hills Boulevard and South Lakeport Street, but will continue to expand throughout the project.

Some residents will be able to log into the new service before the end of the year, according to a statement. Those interested in the service can visit the company’s website and request to be notified when installation is possible at their address.

“As our city continues to grow, it’s important that our residents and businesses have choice in their services,” Mayor Bob Scott said in the statement. “Metronet’s investment in our community will provide Sioux City residents and businesses with additional broadband and Internet access options.”

“We are excited to provide Sioux City with a network that will support the community’s continued economic growth and development for years to come,” CEO John Cinelli said.

Residents must receive notice, by mail, at least 30 days prior to the start of construction in their area of ​​the city. Signs will also be posted to alert people.
