Evansville-based Metronet says it has completed a merger with Lubbock, Texas-based Vexus Fiber. Both companies build and operate fiber optic networks with speeds of one gigabit or higher connected directly to homes and businesses.
Since 2005, Metronet has constructed fiber networks in 220 communities across 14 states, including Indiana. The merger with Vexus expands the footprint to the southwest United States, which operates fiber optic networks in parts of Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana.
The combined companies will continue to operate under their current brands with their current leadership teams. The terms of the merger were not disclosed.
