MetroNet is the largest and fastest-growing independent fiber-to-the-premise operator in the country with networks in 100+ communities across 11 states.

“We’re proud to partner with TBI, leveraging the expertise of their partner community as we help more businesses with voice and data connectivity needs,” said Kevin Stelmach, EVP & General Manager of MetroNet. “As Metronet continues our rapid expansion to bring superior fiber technology to under-served markets, our modern purpose-built fiber network architecture will provide TBI partners with a connectivity choice.”
“With the continued growth in cloud adoption, whether infrastructure, UCaaS, or Contact Center, customers increasingly need more options around network services providers. This is important in having a suitable footprint but allowing organizations to have a solid redundancy option for a network to keep their critical applications and workloads running,” said TBI’s Regional VP of Sales, Marco Sanchez. “MetroNet gives partners in specific markets to help further this and address these objectives with their customers, and we’re very excited to bring MetroNet into the fold.”
