High-speed internet construction begins in LeRoy

LEROY — Metronet said it has started construction of its high-speed fiber optic internet network in LeRoy.

The new addition will future-proof LeRoy’s infrastructure for fiber optic internet and provide residents and businesses a new option for internet, the company said.

“The residents of LeRoy are pleased and excited to welcome Metronet as a member of our community. With the support of Metronet’s 100 percent fiber optic infrastructure, LeRoy will have access to state-of-the-art technology that will improve the way we operate online in our homes and at work,” said Mayor Steven Dean in a statement.

Construction has already started on the south side of town near Countryside Lane and will move forward throughout the community, with the first customers expected to be connected by the summer of 2023.

Residents will receive notice of construction activity in their neighborhood 30 days prior and other messages, such as yard signs, will be placed to help notify residents.

As construction continues, residents may sign up for a presale that will indicate their interest and prioritize service installation once it becomes available, the company said.

As Metronet provides access to future-proof fiber optic service, residents and businesses throughout LeRoy will have the opportunity to power up with internet speeds that will improve the quality of life online,” said Metronet CEO John Cinelli.
