JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Metronet has finished setting up in Jacksonville, allowing residents and businesses to have access to multi-gigabit speeds.

The company first announced that it would be providing services to the city in December 2021. A little over a year later, service is now available for installation. Residents are able to get two gigabits installed and businesses can get up to 10.
