Residents and businesses in the town of Bargersville will soon have access to ultra-high-speed fiber optic internet. Evansville-based Metronet says it is investing millions of dollars to help the Johnson County town become a Certified Gigabit City.
Metronet says construction has begun in the Southview and Morris Meadows subdivisions and will expand over the next two years. The first customers are expected to be online this fall.
“Bargersville is one step closer to becoming a Gigabit City and we are looking forward to working with Metronet to provide another choice for our residents and businesses,” Bargersville Utilities Manager Kevin Killinger said in a news release. “With the implementation of Metronet’s 100 percent fiber optic network, the town of Bargersville will experience the benefits of modern technology for years to come.”
Metronet did not say specifically how much it is investing in the project.
Metronet expects it’s entire network to be available to more than one million residential households and business locations in the near future.
