What is Metronet?

Metronet is an internet service provider (ISP) offering fiber-optic internet, TV and phone services within the Midwest and South. The company is based in Indiana, where most of its subscribers reside, and is one of the largest fiber-optic networks in the country. All services provided by Metronet are delivered over its fiber-optic network.

Metronet internet packages range in speed from 100 megabits per second to 1 gigabit per second, while TV subscriptions typically include up to 250 channels. Fiber phone services are also available, providing a reliable connection and an improved quality of sound. Metronet also makes it simple to optimize your streaming experience by showing you free and paid services in one location.

How does Metronet work?

Metronet uses a fiber-optic network to provide fast, reliable service. Fiber-optic cables are woven with fine, hair-thin glass that transmit data over long distances. ISPs that use this technology install a panel that houses these connections and links your home to the network.

To sign up for Metronet’s internet, TV or phone services, you can go online call the company's customer service. Services are typically installed within 10 days of an order. A pre-installation appointment may be required ahead of the full installation. During this appointment, the technician will bring a fiber drop and a small box that will be fully connected at installation.

Pricing for Metronet services depends on your location, the package you choose and whether or not you're a student. Internet pricing ranges from $49.95 to $89.95 per month at the time of publishing. TV packages run from $25.70 to $104.83 per month, and landline phone services are available for $9.95 per month. These prices will increase after a 12- to 24-month period.

Anytime I've had an issue with the service, the customer service is amazing. I just the customer service member and tell them what's going on and they send somebody out and they fix it. MetroNet gets it knocked out quickly. The internet speed is great because I have teenagers and a boyfriend, and they play that new Xbox X and there's no lag time on the games. Also, and I work from home. It doesn't interrupt with my laptop or cell phones. The internet speed I'm paying for is amazing. Sign up for it.

Metronet's service is good. However, I've had problems with them burying the wires in the ground. They had to re-dig the wires twice and it took quite a while for them to come out. The first time, it took them two weeks for them to come out, and the second time, it took three weeks. But that was the only hiccup that I've had with them. I love the service. I also love the fact that I can call and speak to someone within this country instead of being outsourced, and the fact that they have an office nearby. They also have great quality as far as internet and customer support is very helpful.

    I’m happy with the phone and internet. But the cable, not so much. Just constant, bad service going in and out, disruption, bad picture. Then, it always flashes up the blue screen that says, “Don't worry. We're aware of the problem and working on it. Sorry for the inconvenience.” I also had a lot of problems with my internet. I’ve spoken with the service reps at MetroNet and the techs, and had them out to my house several times. Some of the reps weren’t so good. But the techs that came out to the house were really good.

    I love using MetroNet's internet and the customer service has always been great. I have recommended MetroNet to people all the time. The downside is we don't have a MetroNet building here anymore so it's been hard to pay our bill on time.

    Since having MetroNet installed we have experienced several outages due to damage done to the fiberoptic cable. Every time that I called to report the outage the customer service technician I spoke with was professional, empathetic, and diligently worked to get our service restored in a timely manner. The service technicians that responded and made the necessary repairs were top-notch, quickly and efficiently resolving our issues, taking the time to explain what happened and how the situation was remedied. Overall, we are very happy with changing our service provider to MetroNet for value and customer service.

    Original review: Feb. 27, 2023

    Had called because 1gbps line was not delivering more than 300mbps wireless. The gateway they provided from Eero being the second gen Gateway Pro (not the Pro 6 or Eero 6) model b01001, DOES NOT reach more than 600mbps total. The person on the line Cindy first said it's totally normal for speeds to be around 300mbps wireless and that it was due to my devices. I informed her everything was logged off other than 1 device and that I speed tested across many single online devices and that it wasn't slow for that reason.

    She then told me it was because I changed routers and that people achieve 1gpbs on their EERO gateway router (which is not true). Eero themselves on their site tell you that router cannot go over 600mbps wireless on their site tied to that model number I have provided. So she went from saying it was the router, to my devices. I had 1 device on. I had upgraded to an Eero Pro 6E which was a lightyear more advanced than the Gateway Pro they hooked me up with.

    She went from arguing that 300mbps is normal to saying people get up to 1gbps with router which is factually untrue per Eero. On top of that it completely contradicted her point about 300mbps being normal. Then she went into a whole thing about peak hours. I told her even at 3am, the speeds never touch 500mbps down.

    The part that made the least sense is she was telling me that was normal while my upload could reach over 850 wireless mbps (when using the upgraded mesh Eero and not the outdated one they provided me). While upload did achieve that speed, download never changed. She was unwilling to provide further assistance and grew more rude and more condescending and because of that, we are leaving Metronet for Xfinity. We do not like being treated rudely by someone who isn't knowledgeable who was also unwilling to look any further into it.

    If you want a cheap plan that achieves 33% of the speed you are paying for with reasonably good uptime Metronet is fine. If you want speeds that are close to what are advertised, go somewhere else. You may pay little more, but when I have had similar issues with Xfinity or other ISPs, they've come out and adjusted my setup unlike metronet. The rudeness of the customer support agent is the reason we won't bother even trying to pursue a solution with them. We are done.

    We were very excited about MetroNet coming into town, had even pre signed up before they were even in town. Now I'm in the middle of arguing with one of their lawyers they sicked on me when I complained about them shutting our power down at our business and it cost us a couple grand to do it. I know what lawyers cost and they don't even read a couple emails for what I lost.

    Original review: Sept. 8, 2022

    I had my service installed in March with the promise that the line would be buried as soon as the weather improved. It's now September and the line is still not buried. Since installation the line has been broken twice resulting in days of outage. I have called a dozen times and begged them to bury the line. They really couldn't care less about me as a customer. They continue to promise and never actually do anything. After the most recent break they reinstalled a line that was too short, so it's currently running over my driveway. This was supposed to be a temporary fix (a month ago now). Is there any point in calling them? None. They don't care.

    I canceled. I'm still waiting on the retribution for the money that Metronet owes me. Also, the effectiveness of the delivery wasn't that thorough. Other than that, the personal experience was great.
