MetroNet today celebrated the grand opening of the Davenport storefront as the fiber optic company is busy connecting homes and businesses across the Iowa community. MetroNet, the nation’s largest independently owned, 100 percent fiber optic provider, continues to make progress through the community’s fully funded, multi-million infrastructure build, which began in 2019 and kicked off the overall construction in the Quad Cities region.

The MetroNet Davenport storefront is located at 902 W. Kimberly Rd., Suite 7, and is only steps away from local businesses like Flowers by Jerri and Video Games ETC!. The storefront will allow customers to learn more about the 100 percent fiber optic connections to their home or business with incredible bandwidth, allowing for faster symmetrical speeds.

“The City of Davenport is excited celebrate this next milestone with MetroNet,” said Mayor Mike Matson. “MetroNet has provided Davenport businesses and residents with access to a future-proofed network and more choice.”

Customers in serviceable areas of the Quad Cities region may begin visiting the storefront immediately to learn more about MetroNet and sign up for services including symmetrical gigabit fiber internet, phone and television. Online resources are also available at MetroNetInc.com.
